Instruction Mode Definitions

  • In-Person Class (Face-to-face) - Classes designated as in-person are those for which there is at least some material critical for the class that cannot be acquired without in-person attendance. Most of these classes involve learning skills or using equipment that would not be available remotely. In-person classes may have some content presented online, but students who register for classes without coming to campus cannot take these classes.

  • Hybrid Class (Hybrid/Blended Course) - A hybrid class utilizes both online and in-person experiences. A hybrid class is one designed for the instructor and students to meet in person part of the time and online other times.

  • Online Class (Internet) - An online class is a class designed from the ground up assuming that all students will attend the main class experience online. Material in these classes may be presented synchronously or asynchronously.

  • Correspondence (Correspondence) - Paper-based or electronic Instructional exchange where student is not present on campus.

  • Two-Way Interactive (Two-way Interactive Video) - Students gather to view a lesson presented via Internet or other media. The students and instructor can interact with each other instantly although they are in different physical locations.

  • Web-Enhanced (Web-enhanced) - Traditional campus-based course where the instructor and the students are in the same physical location at the same time, but interact largely via the web or other electronic means.
