Fall semester FAQ

 Will any SOBE courses be delivered face-to-face this fall?

All SOBE courses/programs, except the Administrative Assistant Certificate, will be delivered remotely in fall 2020. Remote delivery of instruction is most often a solution to developing and facilitating a course curriculum in times of face-to-face class interruptions. Instruction is designed in a responsive manner by faculty and often delivered through the faculty’s preferred technology to, under the circumstances, best meet course outcomes. The preliminary course schedules and the 2020/2021 Academic Calendar are now available online. To learn more about registration for fall, please visit Enrolment Services.

 What will remote course delivery this fall 2020 look like?

Most courses delivered through SOBE remote delivery will be a hybrid model, with the majority consisting of both synchronous and asynchronous learning delivered through Moodle.

Synchronous learning is online or distance education that happens in real time; students and faculty are required to be online at the same time. Asynchronous learning occurs through online channels without real-time interaction. Many hybrid learning models will include a blend of both asynchronous and synchronous online learning; although where possible, faculty will look to asynchronous learning methods to provide the most flexibility possible for students.

Moodle is a learning management system designed to provide educators, administrators and learners with a single robust, secure and integrated system to create personalised learning environments. At TRU, Moodle is used in both face-to-face and online delivery and will be used extensively in remote delivery.

 What are the minimum technology requirements to study remotely?

TRU has compiled detailed information about the technology required to be successful when studying remotely. Access information about minimum requirements, free software and contact information for our IT help desk to answer your individual questions.

 How will different time zones be accommodated in remote delivery?

Time zone issues can be a major stumbling block to synchronous delivery. While most faculty at TRU will employ a hybrid model, students should be prepared and available at times when an instructor determines that all students be available in real time.

 How will courses in the winter 2021 semester be delivered?

It is not yet known how the COVID-19 situation may impact the delivery of winter 2021 courses.
