Fall 2023 Instructional Method Definitions
In-person (NORMAL): A course in which all formal instructional contact hours are conducted face-to-face in a classroom, studio, or lab on campus, excluding the use of online for make-up classes. Students must expect that in-person courses will include some online materials and communications in support of class work.
Hybrid/Blended (HYBRID): A course that uses both in-person instructional time on campus and online instructional time. The general schedule of the in-person commitment is shared in the course schedule. Specifics are provided by the instructor.
Remote (synchronous) (RMSYC): A course in which 100% of the instruction occurs remotely (online) and students participate in regularly scheduled virtual class meetings via Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, or another platform. For example, a class originally scheduled for Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:15am will only schedule virtual activities for that time period. Please note that the specific frequency of class meetings is determined by the faculty.
Online (asynchronous) (ONLINE): A course in which 100% of instructional time occurs online with no set time for virtual class meetings.
