Available Instruction Methods

UCLA Extension currently offers three primary modes of remote learning: onlinehybrid, and remote instruction.

While the format of our “online” and “hybrid” instruction methods have remained unchanged, course sections previously offered in-person have transitioned to a virtual classroom format called “remote instruction.” Similar to our traditional classroom offerings, “remote instruction” class sessions are taught in real-time on specific day(s) and time(s) using Zoom.

How to Access Your Course

UCLA Extension utilizes an online learning management system called Canvas. Within Canvas you can interact with your instructor and peers, find course materials, activities, assignments, quizzes, and more. Some courses also use Zoom to conduct scheduled, live-online class sessions.

Details on accessing Canvas will be emailed to you after completing enrollment. Courses in Canvas are typically accessible 2 days before the course start date. If applicable, instructions for accessing and using Zoom will also be provided in Canvas.
