Intro to Online


What exactly is an Online Course?


Traditional Course Definition:
The traditional course is one where the instructor meets face-to-face with the student for all contact hours of the course. However, the student in a traditional course may be required to use the Internet to access online assignments, virtual tours, course documents, learning artifacts, assignment directions, instructor notices/communications and assessments.

Hybrid Course Definition:
A portion of the course is face-to-face. The remainder is taught online.

Online Course Definition:
Course content is delivered 100% online; however, some courses may require students to take tests in a proctored classroom or computer lab setting.
