Campus-wide commitment to safety is important because individuals without symptoms may still be COVID-19 positive and may spread the virus. Actions you can take:

  • Monitor yourself for symptoms and stay home if you are sick.
  • Wear a face covering.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Maintain 6-feet physical distancing.
  • Avoid large crowds.

Student Success Center COVID-19 FAQs

Are face coverings required on campus?

Yes, face coverings are required at all times indoors on campus and outdoors when when social distancing of six feet can’t be assured. Learn more about campus safety requirements on the UARK COVID-19 Page.

What is the difference between face-to-face, hybrid, remote, and online courses?

Face-to-face: All students attend class at a designated physical location and the instructor is present to lead learning activities for the entire class following the appropriate social distancing measures. 

Remote: A temporary shift from face-to-face teaching to the distance delivery of course content. Course content is housed in Blackboard and the content is delivered asynchronously & synchronously via Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. Course delivery will happen at the normally scheduled course time.

Hybrid: A combination of face-to-face and remote instruction. While several models exist for hybrid delivery, at the University of Arkansas the intent is that all students will attend a face-to-face class, in a defined sub-group of the entire class, on an alternating and scheduled frequency. The remainder of the class will attend remotely via Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

Online: A course intentionally designed for online delivery. While some synchronous interaction may be involved in an online course, the bulk of instructional content is delivered asynchronously. All course content and resources reside in Blackboard.

 How is Supplemental Instruction impacted by COVID-19?

The only change for Supplemental Instruction for Fall 2020 is that all SI sessions will be held remotely. Information will be provided by your faculty member.

 How are Tutoring, Academic Coaching, and the Writing Studio impacted by COVID-19?

Tutors, Coaches and Writing Consultants are available online during Fall 2020 for online appointments and chat assistance. Go to Razortrack to schedule an appointment and to view the chat schedule.

 Where can I find resources for remote learning?
