Definitions of Online Instruction
Students are expected to possess the computer skills necessary to type papers, browse and search the Web, access college information, and communicate through e-mail. Beyond these basic expectations, Online and Hybrid sections offer alternatives to traditional faced-to-face classroom instruction.
In an online class, all of the instruction is provided online and no face-to-face classroom instruction is required. Students may be required to attend an orientation or take proctored exams on campus or at an approved location near the student; please refer to the course schedule for more information.
A hybrid class is a combination of face-to-face classroom instruction and online instruction. A portion of the instruction is provided online, but some regular face-to-face instruction is still required. Face-to-face time requirements will vary between hybrid courses and sections; please refer to the course schedule for more information.
In a Web-enhanced class, all of the instruction is provided in a face-to-face classroom setting. However, students are expected to regularly supplement their learning through the use of technology. Examples include sections with online assessments, homework, or discussions.
