Sign up online for classes at MassBay! MassBay Online and Remote Format Courses

JUNE 8, 2020

MassBay Community College has moved all Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 courses to either an online or a remote learning format. We define online classes and remote formatted classes as follows:

An Online Course does not meet at a particular time or day (known as an “asynchronous course”) and all work is completed in the learning management system, Blackboard. Students are not required to meet at a specific date and time each week, but students are required to engage weekly for course assignments. Assignments and instructions from faculty members may include pre-recorded lectures, videos, or tests. The course master will reflect the location for online courses as ONLINE.

A Remote Course is more flexible in structure, with each professor deciding on class times and modes of communication. Students may be required to meet online on a specific day and time each week, as noted in the course master (known as a “synchronous course”). Assignments outlined in the syllabus may be taught in a variety of ways including WebEx, a web-based video conferencing platform, Blackboard learning management system, other digital tools, or in combination. The course master will reflect the location for a remote course as Wellesley, Framingham, or Ashland, based on the campus where the program is traditionally taught, though there will be no face-to-face courses at this time.

Students interested in Summer 2020 or Fall 2020 courses can view the Course Master here. Prospective students who have questions can reach out to MassBay’s Admissions Office at 781-239-2500 or
