Course Delivery

Schedule Type - What does it mean?

As Collin College prepares for Fall 2020, we want to assure you the college’s highest priority is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community. We appreciate your continued flexibility during this challenging time, and we are pleased to offer you a selection of instructional delivery choices for the fall semester. 

When you examine the schedule of classes and look at the course title you will notice a few terms underneath the course title.  (Alternatively, if you are looking at your individual class schedule, these same terms will appear in the Schedule-Type Column).

1)  Web (Fully Online) – A course taught 100% online (i.e. a Web course). Additional testing requirements including proctoring with student authentication, a desktop or laptop computer (not a mobile device), webcam, and microphone may be required. 

2)  Blended (or Hybrid) – A course taught as a Blended (or as a Hybrid) course will be taught partially online and partially on-campus.  Additional testing requirements including proctoring with student authentication, a desktop or laptop computer (not a mobile device), webcam, and microphone may be required. 

The on-campus portion of the course will be delivered in an environment that incorporates social distancing.  Students are expected to come to campus certain days each week for the scheduled class with the remaining instruction/assignments completed online.  The instructor will provide students more specific information on what days students are expected to attend class as well as additional information about course structure in the syllabus. Appropriate face masks/coverings will be required. 

3)  Lecture – (Courses Remaining Completely On-Campus) – The course will be delivered on campus as scheduled while practicing social distancing guidelines.  The course instructor will provide more information and any additional requirements in the syllabus. Appropriate face masks/coverings will be required. 

4)  Lab – In courses that require students to register for separate lab sections, the Schedule Type for the lab section will indicate “Lab”.  Lab sections may be delivered in any of the three formats noted above, and these formats will be communicated by looking at the “Course Description” entry in the class details that you can find by clicking on the course title.  More specific details on exactly how each lab section will be delivered will only appear when lab-section Canvas shells go live in late August. 

5)  Interactive Online - This course will be delivered 100% online; however, it will require students to login on specific days/times.  Additional testing requirements including proctoring with student authentication, a desktop or laptop computer (not a mobile device), webcam, and microphone may be required. 

For any schedule type be sure to check Canvas announcements, the course syllabus, with your professor and other forms of communication from the college to be informed of the requirements for the courses.

More information about online proctored exams is available here.

Please note: Dual credit students will need to check with their high school for course schedule type.
