Course Formats

A modality is the way a course is delivered. Traditionally, many courses have been delivered in an in-person format. With recent advances in technology, several new online course modalities are available:

Online ANYTIME courses are delivered 100% online, with no required face-to-face sessions or scheduled virtual class times. Classes are taught entirely online following instructor timelines and learning outcomes. Students learn content through videos, and materials posted by the instructor. Interaction takes place through discussion boards and written messages. All assignments are submitted online. Exams and orientations can all be completed virtually in this modality. Instructors may schedule optional synchronous study sessions, as necessary.

Online LIVE courses are delivered 100% online using “real-time” synchronous sessions (specifically scheduled virtual class times for online interaction between the instructor and/or the class). Class meeting times are designated in the schedule. Exams and orientations can all be completed virtually in this modality. Online LIVE classes allow for engagement in a remote classroom such as Zoom, WebEx, or Blackboard Collaborate.

Blended classes consist of both on-campus face-to-face meetings and online instruction. The amount of time spent on campus is less than a traditional face-to-face class and the remaining amount of time for the course is completed in an online asynchronous environment. Instructors may schedule optional synchronous study sessions, as necessary.
