Semester in the Cloud - Enhanced Remote Program

Beyond the vast majority of courses that will be conducted remotely in the Fall, Berkeley will be delivering over 30 large gateway courses and critical path classes in an online format as part of the "Semester in the Cloud" program designed to provide an enhanced learning experience for freshmen and international students. Designated as part of a subset of courses that have a "high-impact" on student learning, the Semester in the Cloud courses will then also be ready for remote offerings in future semesters. Faculty in the program will have a team of pedagogical Senior Consultants, Instructional Designers, and Media Specialists for learning design and strategies, content preparation, technical infrastructure, and ongoing delivery support.

Please see below the lists of Fall 2020 courses that will be available for Semester in the Cloud.  These lists include courses that are participating in the summer remote enhancement program as well as courses that have been previously designed for online learning. Please note courses are continuing to be added to these lists.
