MCTC Offering Students a Flexible Fall Schedule

July 30, 2020
By Brady Shultz

 

The Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) fall semester classes start on Monday, August 17. All on-campus general education classes and labs will also be offered remotely the first week of class – allowing students the much-needed flexibility and convenience to participate in a live class at home. 

General education classes with the following prefixes will be available remotely: MUS, HUM, ART, MAT, STA, IRW, WGS, REL, HIS, FYE, ENG, COM, BIO, CHE, SCI, PSY, SOC. Students in most technical, health science, business, early childhood, criminal justice, culinary, and computer classes will come to campus as scheduled. All faculty will be contacting students beginning August 3 to discuss specific class plans.

For the first week of class, instead of coming to campus, students in general education classes can attend their class remotely during the regularly-scheduled class time and join a live stream of the class. During the live stream, students will be able to listen to and see the instructor, “raise their hand” to ask a question, talk to the instructor and type comments in the chatbox. Live streams will also be recorded and posted in Blackboard to be viewed online at any time for students who cannot log in during the scheduled class time. For students who do not have reliable access to a computer or the Internet, students can log in from an on-campus computer and use personal headphones.

During the first week of class, instructors will:

  • Discuss the instructional plan for the semester
  • Develop a rotating schedule for students to come to campus for class and/or lab, as needed, to ensure social distancing
  • Work with students to understand their unique concerns and technology needs
  • Connect students to support services to help them be successful this semester

On-campus, in-classroom seats will also be available in accordance with Kentucky’s social-distancing guidelines during the first week of classes for students who cannot log in remotely (either at home or at an on-campus computer lab). Students who attend in-person classes will be required to wear a face mask at all times while on-campus.
