Video Streaming and Online Classes Information and Instructions for Students University of Central Florida Regional Campuses
Introduction Video Streaming classes are classes where lectures are delivered through online videos and students must take their exams in designated testing centers on their local regional campus. Online classes are classes where all content, including exams, is delivered online.
Identifying Classes in the Schedule Classes that contain a “V” in the course number are video streaming, and classes that contain a “W” are online classes.
Access Online and Video Streaming classes typically open their content a week or so before classes start, but some instructors will not make their classes available until the day classes begin.
