Chipola College Fall 2020 Course Delivery Methods
In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Chipola College officials are preparing to offer classes in several different modes when the Fall 2020 semester begins on Aug. 24.

Some classes will be offered on campus with social distancing and limited meetings, while others will meet online and live through meeting applications such as Zoom. Students and employees will be required to wear masks whenever they are on campus.

For any course with an online component, students will need reliable internet, a computer and a webcam. All courses may require proctored exams, either in-person or through the HonorLock application.

Dr. Pam Rentz, Vice-President of Instructional Affairs, says, “Our deans and faculty have had numerous in-depth and candid discussions about how best to deliver instruction to meet the needs of our students. I am very proud of our faculty and our students for their patience and willingness to adapt to these new ways of teaching and learning.”  

The four modes include:
