livestream and On Campus   livestream Classrooms on Campus

The College has modified existing Technology Enhanced Classrooms that have been designated for use by courses with an LSC designation.  These are "livestream Classrooms on Campus" courses that will be taught on campus during the regularly scheduled days and times, however, not all students will attend each session. Students in this type of course would be assigned to attend the class on designated days to help maintain physical distancing with the remaining students accessing the course remotely through a livestream.
