MASTAHG Course Delivery Formats
History & Political Science Courses
Courses with HIST and POLSC prefixes are available as face-to-face courses during the summer semester in a convenient weeklong format (that is, the complete 2 semester hour course is completed in six days).
HIST and POLSC prefixed courses are available yearround as synchronous online courses via Webex. Classes have a regular meeting day and time. During the fall and spring semesters, classes are offered on an eight week schedule; during the summer semester, classes are offered on two and four week schedules.
Classes are conducted online with no face-to-face sessions. Course meetings are typically asynchronous (that is, the course has a start date, end date, and assignment due dates in between, but no regularly scheduled required meetings along the way). Students access the course content and engage in instructional activities to facilitate learning through Blackboard, the University’s Learning Management System (LMS). Students may be required to interact with the instructor and/or other students synchronously via the LMS or other electronic tools. Clear guidelines are provided within the course. Students should be comfortable with independent work and use of technology. Access to high-speed internet is required. You can review various resources at https://ashland.blackboard.com/ to become acquainted with the LMS. Online classes have a delivery code of “OLC” in the schedule.
Class sessions typically include a combination of face-to-face, synchronous, and asynchronous meetings. Students access course content and engage in instructional activities to facilitate learning through Blackboard and face-to-face sessions. Face-to-face meeting dates/times are listed in this schedule. These are required meeting dates/times; therefore, additional face-to-face courses with similar meeting dates/times cannot be scheduled. Hybrid classes have a delivery code of “HBR” or “HOLC” in the schedule.
Class sessions are a combination of classroom and online where students can attend via Zoom or face-to-face.
Classes are conducted in a traditional classroom setting in regularly scheduled sessions at the Ashland University Main Campus or at AU's regional centers in Columbus, Ohio and Elyria, Ohio. Face-to-face meetings occur during the entire semester during the listed times. Students may be required to engage with Blackboard to access course content. Classroom-based classes have a delivery code of “CLR” in the schedule.
