How to Read Your Student Schedule

 

 

Your schedule of classes is available on the MyAcademics tab of the MyColumbia portal. Here are tips on how to read your schedule to determine if your courses are web synchonous, web asynchonous, hybrid or face to face including what all those terms mean.

Modality Type

Description

How can I tell?

WEB synchronous

Students will be expected to meet in Canvas at the days and times listed in the course schedule. This course will be completely delivered in Canvas with many live elements like video lectures and discussions, remote group projects and presentations, and other activities, supplemented by additional reading, writing, and video assignments. 

  • Code WEB appears in the building field
  • Day(s) and times appear on the schedule

WEB asynchronous

 Students will not be expected to meet in Canvas at any specified days and times. This course will be completely delivered in Canvas. Students will interact with their instructor and classmates on their own schedule, rather than meeting virtually as a group at specific times. 

  • Code WEB appears in the building field
  • NO days and times appear on the schedule (will read TBA on your schedule)

Hybrid

Students will participate in a mix of remote and in-person activities. Students will be expected to meet in Canvas at the days and times listed in the course schedule. Groups of students will meet in person several times during the semester at the dates listed on the course Canvas site.  

  • Code HYB appears in one or more building fields
  • Day(s) and times appear on the schedule
  • Where HYB appears, these dates are online
  • Where an actual building and room appear, students may be required to come to campus. Specific details are available from the instructor and in the Canvas site for the course.

Face to Face

Students in this course will meet in person at the days and times listed in the schedule. In person meetings will be supplemented by additional readings, discussions, and assignments delivered through Canvas. 

 

  • Day(s) and times appear on the schedule
  • Specific building and room appear on the schedule
  • The codes WEB and HYB do not appear on the schedule anywhere for the course

*Remember: regardless of what the course schedule says, ALL courses are online for the first two weeks of the semester: September 8 – 19
