Online Anytime is a traditional online course where content is delivered asynchronously. While there will still be regular and scheduled due dates for assignments, students are not required to log in at scheduled times each week to participate in class sessions, though they may be required to log in at specific scheduled times for exams or other assignments, like individual conferences.
Online Scheduled is an online class at a scheduled time. Students log in to their class at the scheduled times and participate in live, video-supported classes with their instructor and classmates, in addition to completing homework. This online course format is the most comparable to the face-to-face, on-campus experience.
Hybrid courses will include online lectures and on-campus attendance to complete labs or hands-on experiences. For fall, this will be reserved for courses requiring face-to-face instruction for hands-on learning. The on-campus experience will include social distancing, specific entry and exit points, and personal protective equipment for students and faculty.
Clinical and Internship experiences will continue at the off-campus locations as long as the hosting partner is able.
“Offering Online Anytime and Online Scheduled classes allows our students the structure and flexibility to continue their education in the format that works best for them,” said ICC President Dr. Sheila Quirk-Bailey. “Our approach ensures quality educational outcomes while providing our students with the opportunity to continue progressing toward completing their credential.”
Regardless of the way students take classes at ICC, all will have access to the same virtual support and services, such as academic support, counseling, free tutoring, library services, career advising and more. All these services may be accessed at icc.edu/virtualservices.
