“Up until the pandemic hit, a normal fall at MTC would be made up of about 75% on-campus and 25% online courses,” said Barrie Kirk, MTC’s Provost. “Based on data about the virus and student feedback, we decided that a major shift in course delivery options was necessary.”
MTC officials said the virtual courses will make up 45% of fall courses. Another 16% of the courses will be delivered online while 33% will be provided on campus.
MTC will hold live virtual demonstrations on July 29 and July 30.
