What is alternate delivery?

It is a delivery model that uses a mix of online and in-person online instruction.  Synchronous (in-person online) instruction allows for the instructor and student to engage simultaneously (online) using the video conferencing tool Microsoft Teams during a scheduled time.  Other resources, activities and assignments are provided in Blackboard, for students to access during a given time framework.

What do I need for my courses at SLC?

It is recommended that you have a computer and Wi-Fi access for your course. Materials and your student learning platform are not optimized for mobile devices and can require significant amounts of bandwidth to access.

Why can't I go to campus for continuing education courses this fall?

Access to campus during COVID-19 is still restricted. This fall, Continuing Education courses are being offered by Alternate Delivery which uses web technologies and resources to facilitate and contribute to learning that takes the place of a face to face course on campus.

Can I access my class at anytime?

Alternate delivery classes have a specified time to meet online, just like being in class. Most classes are held weekly at the same time and on the same day. However, you can access the course information in Blackboard 24-7.

Do I need a computer to take an alternate delivery course?

You will need a computer or tablet with a camera, mic and high speed internet access.

Do I have to be on camera?

This is something the teacher will decide. For some students it may take too much bandwidth which can affect the internet connection.

Will I need special programs on my computer to do my classes?

As an SLC student you will have a student account which includes an SLC email address. You will access your course through this account. You will find Microsoft Teams here and it is the program that you will use to attend class.
