Students will find more course-delivery options at COTC this autumn

| July 8, 2021

Students enrolling at Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) this autumn and beyond will find more flexibility in course-delivery options than ever before.

The health and well-being of students, faculty and staff have been COTC’s foremost priorities during the pandemic. Now, with COVID-19 protocols easing and only unvaccinated individuals required to wear masks and distance indoors on campus, the college eagerly prepares to welcome more students back to its four campus locations for in-person classes and labs when autumn semester begins on Wednesday, Aug. 25. But the welcome return of more on-campus classes is only part of COTC’s plan to meet student needs.

Flexible Course-Delivery Options
Flexible course-delivery options that allow students to choose their preferred course-delivery method underpin the college’s new academic planning. Students need the flexibility to fit their education around their busy lives and individual needs, whether they prefer on-campus classes, virtual or a combination of options. So, over the last year, COTC invested substantially in virtual technologies and online course development to support an extensive increase in course-delivery modes. And while some courses that require hands-on participation cannot be delivered remotely, if students don’t initially see a course offered in their preferred delivery mode, COTC is committed to adding the option whenever possible.

“Our goal is to meet students where they are and to do our best to offer each student an educational experience that works best for them – allowing them to choose their preferred academic delivery method – whether that’s on campus, online, or a hybrid model,” said COTC President John M. Berry, PhD.

To meet that goal, the college will offer classes in five delivery options – on campus, hybrid, hy-flex, remote and online – as it builds on its commitment to meet students where they are.
