When choosing classes, students should pay careful attention to the class details, including Instruction Mode, Days, Times and Location. Instruction Mode is the way classes meet (online, face-to-face, or a blend of the two). Students should choose classes in the Instruction Mode(s) that works best for them.
- Traditional (TR): No online technology used — content is delivered in writing or orally. May have a video of the class that is used during the initial delivery and viewed later. A physical location will be listed.
- Social distancing guidelines will be followed.
- Many courses will be moved to larger rooms to accommodate social distancing within the classroom.
- Web Facilitated (WF): Includes face-to-face instruction includes those courses in which 1 to 29 percent of the content is delivered online. May have a video of the class that is used during the initial delivery and viewed later. A physical location will be listed.
- Blended class (BL): Defined as having between 30 percent and 80 percent of the course content delivered online. It is sometimes called hybrid. Portions of the class taught in-person will have a physical location listed. Online portions will list Internet as the location. Two examples of blended options are:
- Class splits: Part of the class attends in person on one day, while the rest take that day online. Then they rotate.
- Lecture/discussion group: Lectures for the whole class are online. Smaller discussion sections are in person.
- On-Line (OL): A course where most or all (80% or greater) of the content is delivered online. Typically these sections have no face-to-face meetings, but there may be some or face-to-face exams, etc. The location will be Internet.
- Synchronous learning: attend virtually at the time the class is taught.
- Asynchronous learning: complete the online materials on your schedule. Also known as a self-paced course.
- E-Learning (EL): 100% on line (may have proctored exams). The location will be Internet.
Days & Times
- Arranged: When “Arranged is listed as “Days” (in Schedule Planner) and for “Days & Times” (in myZou), it means students are not expected to login or Zoom at a designated time. Students will complete the online materials on their own schedule as outlined in the class syllabus. (This is known as asynchronous learning.)
- Day(s) of week & specific time: Whether these classes are offered face-to-face or online (“Location” or “Room” is listed as INTERNET), students are expected to participate at that time. They will appear in person, login to a designated site or Zoom at the given time. (This is known as synchronous learning.)

Check your Schedule
- Check your class schedule in myZou or Schedule Planner.
- Occasionally, class details may change before the class begins meeting. When changes are made to classes you are registered for, a notification email will be sent by the department.
- Continue to check and read your Mizzou email regularly (at least a couple times each week).
- If changes result in conflicts to class times, use Schedule Planner to find a new section or class, or talk to your academic advisor.
- Requirements for each of your classes – especially web facilitated, online, blended or eLearning – may vary. Your instructors will provide details about attendance, required class times, instructions for logging on, etc.
Other Helpful Information
- Prepare for registration with the Registration Task Center in MizzouOne.
- Check your holds. Holds may stop you from being able to register for classes.
