Learning

Last updated July 29, 2020

UND will offer both on-campus and online courses in the fall and spring. Most in-person courses will be able to move to remote teaching if necessary. Adjustments include:

  • All classrooms have been assigned a COVID-19 seating capacity. That means, for example, that 30 students may be in a 100-person classroom.
  • Instructors will develop different ways to accommodate physical distancing requirements. For example, some may assign students into smaller groups and rotate groups into the classroom while other groups participate via video conferencing. Students may be assigned seats and/or asked to sit in the same seat for each class period.
  • Most buildings (and applicable classrooms) will have designated entrances and exits, along with one-way stairwells and hallways where possible.
  • Time between classes has been extended to 15 minutes to accommodate physical distancing.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes will be available in every building and department.
  • Floor markers will remind faculty and students to remain six feet apart.
  • Faculty may hold office hours via videoconferencing.
  • Blackboard will be used as UND’s official learning module. All assignments will be distributed and collected through Blackboard to avoid exchanging papers.
  • Needed technology will be indicated on course syllabi.
  • Advising and no-cost tutoring services will be offered virtually.

How Classes will be Offered

  • Classes are listed in Campus Connection as either online or on-campus.
  • Any changes to the delivery method of classes (on-campus or online) will be updated to Campus Connection. You should check your course schedule to see if the delivery method has changed.
  • Students can decide if they want to modify their course schedule as a result of any delivery method changes. You may want to contact your academic advisor before modifying your schedule.
  • All Final Exams will be completed remotely for both on-campus and online courses.
  • Graduate/professional students should check with your department for program-specific information.
