How can I find and manage my classes remotely?

 

Where are my classes?

  • Find your classes on Canvas
  • Find your classes on Sakai
  • Check the Schedule of Classes to learn which learning management system each course uses
  • Check your My.Rutgers Dashboard using the My Course Schedule and My Course Activity widgets

When do my classes meet?

  • If you see specific Days of the Week and Times, then the class meets live, on-line, usually using Zoom or WebEx.   You are required to be logged-in and in virtual attendance at those times.  This format emulates the face-to-face classroom experience and all students will be meeting together with the instructor at the designated times.  You can ignore the Campus Location since the course is meeting on-line.
  • If you see “Hours by Arrangement” or “N/A”  or no course meeting information, then the class does not have specific meeting times.  Rather, the course site will indicate weekly requirements and assignment due dates.   In addition, flexible opportunities to meet with TAs, instructors, and classmates via Zoom or WebEx will be a part of these classes.  This format provides flexibility for students who prefer not to log in at a fixed time or reside in another time zone.  These courses still require the same number of hours per week as more traditional course formats and meet the same learning goals.  These courses ARE NOT self-paced; there is a weekly schedule beginning the first week of classes with flexible opportunities for live, remote, interaction.
