Instruction Mode Information

Instruction Mode

Instruction Mode shows methods of how a class can be taught. There are seven (7) different types of instruction modes available for scheduling.  All classes will default to In Person (P).

If other instruction modes (PS, M, WW, TV, TW, and SW) are being offered, the corresponding class note should be included to make class descriptions clear to students.  If the mode is changed, schedulers must correct the class note to reflect the change.

All courses for a given term have fully enrolled Canvas shells regardless of mode of instruction. (The courses are “unpublished” by default and the link for the course does not show to the students unless the instructor publishes the course.) Full details are available on the eCampus website at http://www.sjsu.edu/at/ec/.
