Starting AY 2022-23, MCL will deliver learning sessions in multiple modes to cater to varied learner preferences and ensure learning continuity at any given condition.
 
All face-to-face learning sessions will be live streamed and recorded. There will no longer be any solely face-to-face sessions. 
 
The learner can choose whether to participate via in-classroom (face-to-face), via live stream (synchronous online), or via recorded class session (asynchronous online) delivery modes.

In most MCL FLUX classes, students do not have to bring their laptops, tablets, or other devices unless required for their classes. However, the learning experience will be richer for students attending class in person to have at least one device that can connect to the synchronous environment.
 
Students participating online will need stable internet access and technology as any other fully online student - available computer device with audio (microphone) and video (camera).
 
Also, students are advised to bring their hygiene kit or essentials for safety: ethyl/rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer, cleansing wipes/tissue, hand soap, and extra face masks.

All College students who will participate in F2F classes are required to submit their vaccination card or medical certificate with negative antigen test result and duly accomplished Student Consent Form prior to attending classes in-person.
