Bring Huskies Home
The Full Husky Experience means that classes are offered as they were before the pandemic. Classes held in person prior to the pandemic, for example, will return to this delivery format beginning Fall 2021. We will also offer a portfolio of hyflex, hybrid, and online options to best meet the unique needs of our students.
What are the available course formats offered by St. Cloud State?
In-person courses: Students enrolling in fully in-person courses will have class meetings with the instructor in classrooms, labs, studios, or in the field. Course content and assignments are typically available in D2L, our course management platform.
- Blended/hybrid courses: Students participating in a blended/hybrid course will have both in-person and online meetings and activities. Courses will use state-of-the-art technology and incorporate software, such as Zoom, to foster active engagement. Assignments, exams and class discussions are accessible through D2L, the web-based course management software.
- Online Courses: Students engaging in online classes are able to participate in courses without any in-person/on campus meetings or requirements. Students enrolled in asynchronous online classes participate in learning activities at a time and on a schedule that is unique and best suited to them. Asynchronous classes provide enhanced flexibility for students who need a more customized class schedule. A synchronous online class, although delivered completely online, has set meeting dates and times as well as specific due dates for course activities. Synchronous online courses often use Zoom software for a participative experience.
- Hyflex Courses: Students will find hyflex courses allow them to learn in-person, online asynchronously, and/or online synchronously. With the instructor’s permission, students may participate in one or all methods of learning and may vary the learning model during the course of the semester.
