As a member of Shocker Nation, we want to make sure you are aware of some items for Fall 2020!
Fall 2020 Courses
All Fall courses at WSU will be either HYB (hybrid), or IIE (fully online).
HYB might include limited in-person instruction, some synchronous online engagement (with participants meeting at the same time), and/or asynchronous content delivery (with participants engaging the materials independently). There are no additional fees for HYB courses.
We have created a great website, wichita.edu/fall2020, as a place for faculty to make available their plans for the instructional method they are choosing to offer for each course.
With our new course structure, comes the need for technology. Here are some technology recommendations to make sure you are able to access what you need:
For Windows and Mac, Minimum Core i5, 8GB, 128-256GB storage with integrated webcam / mic.
For Chromebooks, Minimum 4GB RAM and 32GB storage with webcam / mic.
Please note: there are some known issues with Chromebooks and using a program called Respondus for some courses — please check with your instructor to find out if they will be using Respondus for their courses.
If you are not able to purchase this technology, we want you to know we do have some loaner Chromebooks and MiFi’s will be available free on a first-come, first-served basis through Information Technology Services (ITS) after July 15th.
Other Course Needs
To find information on any other needs for your courses (textbooks, supplies, etc.), visit the myClasses tab in your myWSU portal. In the myTextbooks box (located in the bottom right), enter your academic term and the Course Registration Numbers (CRNs) — that's the five-digit code associated with your course — and a list of materials will be provided for you! Get step-by-step instructions here.
Thank you so much for taking time to look through these options, and if you have any other questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out anytime!
We are so excited to see you in the fall and have you as a member of SHOCKER NATION!
