Notes on Virtual Instruction

Privacy and Ethics

According to the Berkeley Office of Ethics, recordings of your classes can only be conducted by the host of the meeting, and recordings can only be accessed by the members of the course. Please observe these policies and respect the privacy of your peers. As with in-person instruction, Berkeley students are expected to support an environment of academic integrity and respect in their virtual courses.

What is the difference between "asynchronous classes" and "time conflict enrollment allowed"? 

  • Time conflict enrollment allowed means that a student may enroll in the course even if the time conflicts with another enrolled course. If time conflict enrollment is allowed, it will be tagged as such in the class schedule. However, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that there is not a final exam time conflict. If there is, the student must choose between the two classes. No final exams will be rescheduled due to time conflicts. 
  • Some classes with the “asynchronous” notation may be asynchronous only; others may have a synchronous option — consult the class notes or class syllabus for details. 
  • An asynchronous class may allow for time conflicts or it may not. A time conflict enrollment allowed course may be asynchronous or it may not.
