Online/Fully Distance Education Course
This form of instruction does not occur at a specific day or time, otherwise known as “asynchronous” learning. At least 85% of this instruction is delivered online* via Canvas and additional online tools, which allows students to learn on their own time. There may be a face-to-face component such as orientation, laboratory, exam review, or an in-person test, which would be communicated by the instructor.
Remote synchronous instruction takes place 100% online at scheduled class days and times.* It offers the benefits of face-to-face instruction while maximizing social distancing efforts. Remote instruction takes place via Zoom, Canvas, and additional online tools.
Face-to-face indicates that instructors and students are in the same physical location at the same time. These courses meet for on-campus instruction at least 50% of the time.* There may be some remote elements to these courses.
These courses include both remote synchronous and face-to-face instruction. In these courses, 50-85% of instruction is remote synchronous.*
