Sign up online for classes at MassBay! MassBay Online and Remote Format Courses

MAY 8, 2020

MassBay Community College has moved all summer 2020 courses to either an online or a remote learning format. We define online classes and remote formatted classes as follows:

An Online Course does not meet at a particular time or day (known as an “asynchronous course”) and all work is completed in the learning management system, Blackboard. Students are not required to meet at a specific date and time each week, but students are required to engage weekly for course assignments. Assignments and instructions from faculty members may include pre-recorded lectures, videos, or tests. The course master will reflect the location for online courses as ONLINE.

A Remote Course is more flexible in structure, with each professor deciding on class times and modes of communication. Students may be required to meet online on a specific day and time each week, as noted in the course master (known as a “synchronous course”). Assignments outlined in the syllabus may be taught in a variety of ways including WebEx, a web-based video conferencing platform, Blackboard learning management system, other digital tools, or in combination. The course master will reflect the location for a remote course as Wellesley, Framingham, or Ashland, based on the campus where the program is traditionally taught, though there will be no face-to-face courses at this time.

Students interested in a summer course can view the Course Masterhere. Prospective students who have questions can reach out to MassBay’s Admissions Office at 781-239-2500 or admissions@massbay.edu.
