Frequently asked questions on MCL Flux Courses for Students
What is MCL Flux?
Why are we using MCL Flux?
Aside from having choices whether to attend learning sessions in-campus or online, other benefits of MCL FLUX courses include: more learning opportunities through LMS materials and activities, more control over their pace of learning, more schedule flexibility (when multiple classes are offered MCL FLUX courses), and the ability to learn how to learn online without committing to an “only-online” course.
What are the MCL Flux Principles?
The MCL FLUX course design is built upon these four fundamental values:
• Learner Choice: Provision for meaningful alternative participation modes where students will be able to choose between participation modes daily, weekly, or topically.
• Equivalency: Provision for learning activities in all participation modes which lead to equivalent learning outcomes.
• Reusability: Utilization of artifacts from learning activities in each participation mode as “learning objects” for all students.
• Accessibility: Equipping students with technology skills and equitable access to all participation modes.

What technology will be used to deliver MCL Flux Courses?
What technology do students need to participate in MCL Flux Courses?
MCL FLUX students participating online would need the same technologies as any other fully online student: a computer with audio (mic) and video (camera) and reliable network access.
How will the learning sessions work with MCL FLUX?
All face-to-face learning sessions henceforth will be live-streamed and recorded. There will no longer be any solely face-to-face sessions. We will use the term FLUX, which stands for Flexible Learning Ubiquitous eXperience, to describe this hybrid flexible mode of in classroom, live-streamed, and recorded delivery of learning sessions. The learner will choose whether to participate In the in-classroom (face-to-face), live-stream (synchronous online), or recorded class session (asynchronous online) delivery modes.
