Fall 2020 Courses

All Agriculture Diploma program courses for the Fall 2020 semester will be delivered in an alternative delivery format through CourseLink and other online platforms.

Note that there may be entire courses or components of courses taught in other programs that will also be delivered in an alternative delivery format.

What do these Alternative Delivery Formats mean?

  • Asynchronous (AD-A; Remote) learning happens without the need for real-time interaction. Your instructor will provide materials for reading, lectures for viewing, assignments, and assessments with deadlines. You can access the material and satisfy these requirements based on your schedule; you do not need to login in at specific times. Courses being offered in this format have all been assigned a 1-hour AD-S: VIRTUAL "tutorial" block, which will appear on your F20 schedule.
  • Synchronous (AD-S; VIRTUAL) learning is the kind of learning that happens in real-time. This means that you, your classmates, and your instructor interact through a specific online medium (e.g. Zoom, Teams, Virtual Classroom), at a specific time (e.g. 9:00 AM to 9:50 AM, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday)

Note: that an alternative delivery course may have a combination of delivery methods used (e.g. AD-A: REMOTE lectures and AD-S: VIRTUAL labs; or AD-S: VIRTUAL lectures and an AD-A: REMOTE lab)

Some courses are listed on WebAdvisor with differed delivery methods because they are taught in more that one program and may be offered on-campus in Face-to-Face delivery mode for one program, but not available in that format to another program (e.g. DAGR*1200 Applied Plant Science is only available in Alternative Delivery to students in the Agriculture diploma program but will be taught Face-to-Face to students in the Horticulture diploma program)
