From Email to Teaching Faculty on August 25, 2021:

Administration, Faculty and Instructors

As we enter yet another semester of our “new regular”, we want to equip you with as much information concerning the methods, technology and how to get assistance for your courses.

The five modalities that will be used this semester are:

  1. Traditional
  2. NUFlex
  3. LiveCast
  4. Video Streaming
  5. Online

These modalities come with regulations and approvals for their use.

Traditional of course is the traditional way in which each of us have taught on the past. Face to Face. This is the modality most courses should be using this semester.

NUFlex is the method to be used for special circumstances, where you have students who cannot make it to campus due to visa problems, etc. Please use this link to download "NUFlex-Technology.docx” which provides links that will help you use the technology that the university has installed in most classrooms. It also provides the methods to be used to get help from IA who are hired by the university to help instructors in their classrooms who need help with issues and problems.

LiveCast is a new modality that must be approved by your Associate Dean and University guidelines must be followed. Please use this link to download “live-cast_Fac-Version.pdf” which provides specifics of its use and how it will be administered.

Video Streaming is the NUFlex technology creating a recorded version of your lecture for asynchronous students to later access your lectures. This is listed as a V35 section and is aligned with an on-ground section. Please use this link to download “VideoStreamingClasses.docx”, which provides the NUFlex definitions and links that will direct you on how to record your lectures for the V35 students to access.

Online is the same as it has been in the past. A course that has been approved to be developed into an Online version of the traditional course. Approval must come from the department and the Online Group.

If after contacting the University’s IA, you still need help, we have 4 CT this semester (one per shift) and Mike and I to help. To contact our group, email Michael Johnson – mic.johnson@northeastern.edu; or Brad Van Alfen – b.vanalfen@northeastern.edu

Thank You
