As colleges release their plans for the fall semester, even those hoping to reopen their campuses are leaning heavily on remote instruction to spread out students and give them more options.
Under some hybrid models, instructors will teach classes in person and simultaneously livestream those lessons to remote students. Another format is offering a mix of fully in-person or online courses. And others are planning to shift from in-person to virtual classes after Thanksgiving.
But it can be tough to ensure remote and in-person students get the same quality of education when they take classes together.
