Remote Learning Accommodations: Fall 2021
In the fall 2021 academic term, classroom density restrictions are lifted, all instructors of on-ground course sections are expected to be in person on campus, and students will be in the classroom every day instead of alternating between remote and in-person.
As always, some students may be temporarily absent from the classroom for illness or other reasons. Other students who are unable to come to campus for the entire academic term will be learning remotely for the duration of the term, having received approval through their colleges for remote learner status. Faculty will receive notification of which students in their class sections are approved to be remote.
Northeastern strives to support the academic success of our students in the best possible way, particularly those who are experiencing unexpected challenges or temporary absences. Instructors have access to academic technology tools—Canvas and other integrated tools—to ensure these students can fully participate in their courses.
For students unable to come to class in person, faculty can offer options most appropriate for the course context and student. This might include offering a private Microsoft Teams or Zoom meeting link available only to the student(s) unable to attend in person, recording their lectures, and/or holding virtual office hours. The Digital Flexibility guide provides faculty with a list of links and resources to support student success.
