Students unable to meet during the designated time will not be penalized; all information will be made available via Blackboard). Your delivery method will begin on January 19, 2021/February 15, 2021 (12-week) and continue in that manner until the semester is over, regardless if you are face-to-face or a virtual student learning from home.
