Online Classes at MVC

COVID-19 Notices and Information | Distance Ed/Online Classes Information


Are my classes online?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, most of Moreno Valley College's classes are online in order to address the need for social distancing and to ensure our students, faculty, staff and administration remain safe within our learning community.

Only select classes - see below - have in-person meetings to fulfill required labratory and hands-on training requirements. All lectures meet online.


Synchronous and Asynchronous Instruction

Synchronous and asynchronous learning use different methods of conveying information

The majority of the online courses are asynchronous - meaning that assignments and interaction with the class do not happen at scheduled times each week. There are assignments, modules, and due dates in these courses that will have submission deadlines.

A smaller group of our courses will be online and synchronous - meaning that students will interact with their instructor via video conference (like Zoom) at specific times and days each week. Most likely at the the meeting days/times will be those listed in the schedule of classes.

Students should contact their instructors for more information about how the class will meet each week.


Which online classes have scheduled virtual lectures?

While most classes will not have scheduled virtual lectures that require students to watch a class lecture at a specific day or time, be sure to check with your instructors to see whether this will be the case for each class you have.


Which classes have in-person meetings and labs?

Select classes that require on-campus lab, clinical, or skills-based training will have on-campus meetings. In-person meetings will follow social distancing and safety guidelines. Courses that have in-person meetings and labs are in the following disciplines:

  • Administration of Justice (ADJ-Academies)
  • Biology (BIO 55 - Microbiology)
  • Dental Assistant (DEA)
  • Dental Hygiene (DEH)
  • Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
  • Fire Technology (FIT - Fire Academy)
  • Kinesiology (KIN 30 - First Aid & CPR)

All other course sections will be online with instruction in synchronous (scheduled virtual meetings) and asynchronous (no scheduled meetings) formats.
