What is the difference between remote vs online learning?
Remote learning is when a course that was developed for in-person delivery has to be delivered in an alternate way due to a disruption in in-person delivery. Remote learning may or may not have assigned class times, and may be delivered through a variety of methods (pre-recorded lectures, live online lectures, online content delivery). Online learning is when a course has been developed to be delivered online and will primarily use Brightspace (which you access through your My MUN account), with little to no assigned class time.
