NUflex

A safe, hybrid-flexible way to teach and learn

Northeastern’s reopening to students in the fall includes the implementation across all campuses of a learning model, Hybrid NUflex. This model leverages new technology and flexible schedules to enable students to learn from anywhere, anytime.

Learning From Anywhere

Hybrid NUflex allows students to learn from anywhere—in an on-campus classroom or anywhere in the world. The participants in the classroom will have a safe in-person experience that meets public health guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, while at the same time those at a distance can still fully participate in the activities of a class.

Planning a Safe Return to the Classroom

Northeastern is committed to making in-person classroom instruction safe for all instructors. Learn more about how to prepare for a safe return before and after the start of the spring semester.

Classroom Technology

Using new and existing classroom technology, faculty can teach students who are both in the classroom and at a distance. Read more about the enhancements and capabilities in classrooms across Northeastern’s global network that can be expected this fall.

Canvas and Integrated Tools

Canvas is a home base for all course materials, activities, and teaching tools this fall. Read more about how students and instructors can continue learning and teaching during scheduled real-time classes as well as in between class meetings.

Dynamic Scheduling

Density in classrooms will be reduced to meet public health guidelines and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Dynamic scheduling in the new Student Hub gives students flexibility in how to attend classes , on a weekly basis.

Take Part in a Live Hybrid NUflex Demonstration

In many of the classrooms across Northeastern, faculty can easily teach a Hybrid NUflex class, leveraging tools and methods that are already familiar. View a recorded demo or register for a live demo via Zoom to experience what a classroom looks like with an instructor, students in-person in the classroom socially distanced, and students participating remotely through a Zoom session. In these demos, an instructor walks through the new technology and how to interact with it during class to maximize the NUflex learning experience.

Keep Teaching, Keep Learning

Resources and support will be provided to help ensure that faculty and students have the best experience with the technology that enables the Hybrid NUflex program. Remote health monitoring of in-room systems will help minimize disruptions and potential downtime. More details on the classroom configurations, including visuals, documentation, and training will be shared in the coming weeks.

Workshops are available now for faculty to familiarize themselves with and gain competency in Canvas, Zoom, accessibility tools, and other technologies used for teaching a Hybrid NUflex class.
