Before the decision to offer the summer session remotely, the colleges all ascertained which courses would be online and which would be face-to-face. When the decision was made to move to remote instruction, those that were face to face were instead listed as ‘remote’ in the course schedule. Those that were previously designated as online are still designated as online. The ‘remote’ classes will be offered synchronously with the instructor and students interacting over Zoom. Those that are online were prepared differently by the instructor, using a variety of pedagogies. Because online course development does in general require a different level of preparation on the part of the instructor, the tuition rates are not the same. So, just to clarify, you are not paying a different rate as a result of the decision for the summer session to be offered remotely — we maintained the tuition pricing structure that was in place prior.
