How it works:
A request is made for a Fall College Algebra class at 9am (ex: Fall, 24469, 6 students). That request gets put into the Dean's system to be given an assigned section number (specifically for that site and for that class). Once the section number is created, the amount of students requested from that site can then sign-up for that class.
Western IT will then ensure that site has the equipment necessary for an ITV connection.
Successfully enrolled ITV students will attend class in the prospective school's ITV classroom and will be checked for roll call at the start of every class. Assignments can be turned in via Email, online classes (Canvas), or given to the Counselor/Classroom aid depending on the instructor teaching.
