School of Graduate and Professional Education to switch to live, online delivery

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, the Deree School of Graduate and Professional Education will switch to live, online delivery of courses on Tuesday, November 3 2020, and until conditions allow to resume in-class instruction.

In order for students to access the virtual classroom on the designated day and time, instructors will place a web link in their course’s Announcement section on Blackboard. All personal computers should have a camera and be able to handle Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and Proctorio. Students will also need a set of headphones with microphone.

The technical requirements for online courses are available below.

Similarly to Spring 2020, Deree instructors and administrators remain committed to providing students with a high-quality educational experience.
