Want to know more about your classroom options? See the seven different course delivery modes below. Please note that all audio and video class formats require students to have a webcam-enabled device in order to fully participate.

In Person Class

In-Person classes are scheduled to meet on-campus during a set day/time. The class may have some online components, but the majority of the interaction will be provided during the in-person class time.

Hybrid Class

Hybrid (H)

  • Audio
  • Video

Hybrid classes are a mix of regularly scheduled in-person meetings on campus during a set day/time and online activities. The online activities may be either asynchronous (without scheduled meetings, students work on their own time) or synchronous (scheduled meetings).

Blended classes are mostly online, but the class meets in-person strategically throughout the semester, perhaps for exams or student presentations. The in-person class meetings are scheduled on specific dates at a set day/time. The online portion of the course may be either asynchronous (without scheduled meetings, students work on their own time) or synchronous (scheduled meetings).

Online (O)

Online classes are asynchronous (without mandatory scheduled meetings). While there are still due dates often associated with modules, weeks, or units of the course, students can plan to do the course work when they have time to do so. Any synchronous (scheduled) class meetings are voluntary and recorded to share with all students.

Virtual Classroom

Virtual Classroom (V)

  • Audio
  • Video

Virtual Classroom classes are scheduled to meet online during a set day/time. This synchronous online platform allows faculty to provide lectures, group work, real-time discussion or Q&A.

Interactive Video Course

Interactive Video (CT)

  • Audio
  • Video

Interactive Video campus-to-campus courses are scheduled to meet on-campus during a set day/time and are held in Distance Education specialty rooms. The instructor and some students attend in-person at one campus while the remaining students attend in-person at one or more other campuses. Everyone attends in-person at two or more locations. Class sessions are not recorded. There will be a Special Note added to these classes indicating they are campus-to-campus.

In Person with Streaming Capability

In Person with Streaming Capability (C)

In-Person with Streaming Capability classes are scheduled to meet on-campus during a set day/time and are held in classrooms with special Distance Education technology. The faculty member attends in-person at one campus. The students may attend in-person in the classroom with the faculty member, virtually during the scheduled class time, or watch the recording of the class at a later time. Students attending virtually cannot interact with the in-person class. Class sessions are recorded and shared.
