Online Classes


At YTU, courses can be conducted: on-site, hybrid or remote:

on-site: in-person with students and instructors physically present in a learning environment

hybrid: a combination of on-site and remote

remote: online


eLearning during COVID-19 remote operations

Some classes may be converted to an online format due to the COVID-19 outbreak and you may have synchronous online classes.

Synchronous (same time) classes operate much like a traditional face-to-face class. Students meet at an assigned time and day (as stated on the course schedule) through an online meeting tool while their instructor conducts classroom activities. These classes are called synchronous because everyone needs to gather together at the same time to attend class – they just do it remotely instead of in a physical classroom. Attendance to online courses is compulsory.

Homeworks, assignments, quizzes, projects, etc. are submitted through  or another web-based tool announced by the instructor. Class discussion takes place online and the instructor may share some materials online. The instructors might hold "office hours" online, or they might set up other online ways for you to connect with them.

With the approval of the instructor, the classes may be recorded and accessible as online videos for you to watch again later (but you will still need to complete your tasks by set due dates).
