When searching for Spring/Summer 2020 term classes in Mosaic, you may have noticed two similar terms being used in the mode of instruction: ‘Virtual Classroom’ and ‘Online’.
‘Virtual Classroom’ refers to any class that was originally scheduled as in-person, which has now moved to an online format.
‘Online’ refers to classes that were always intended to be online.
Please note: When a course is specified as ‘Online self-study’ with no dates and times, this means that is asynchronous (self-paced).
Since all Spring/Summer classes are being offered in an online format, the real difference between the two terms is how the class was originally planned to be offered.
