Delivery Methods

UNBC offers courses at all of its campuses using a variety of delivery methods. With the exception of web courses, these classes have regularly scheduled meeting times. Schedules are available from your Regional campus or online.


In this method, the students and the instructor are present in the same classroom, with regularly scheduled meeting times and locations. Some face to face courses are scheduled in intensive sessions. (one week or alternating weekends, etc.) Face to face courses will indicate "Lecture" as the Schedule Type in the online listings.


Audio-conferencing uses interactive telephone connections between classrooms at two or more campuses, with the instructor located at one of these campuses. Audio-conference classes are scheduled at regular meeting times and may be supplemented with handouts and/or site visits. See the Delivery of Assignments section for information on sending assignments to your professor. Audio-conference courses will indicate "Audio/Video" as the Schedule Type in the online listings.

Students enrolled in web-based courses will obtain their course materials, give presentations, participate in class discussions and submit assignments online. These classes require students to have access to a computer with an internet connection. Students should be registered at least two weeks before classes start in order to receive important information required to access these courses.
