Mode of Instruction

  • In Person - Faculty and students are scheduled in a particular classroom or laboratory during a set day/time. Class meetings are synchronous.
  • Hybrid - A hybrid course is a course where the content is taught using face-to-face and online or “time-out-of-class” learning modes other either synchronously or asynchronously. Less than 75 percent of the instruction and interaction occurs via electronic communication, correspondence or equivalent mechanisms, with the faculty and students physically separated from each other.
  • Blended - A blended course is a course where the content is taught using face-to-face and online or “time-out-of-class” learning modes either synchronously or asynchronously. In accordance with HLC’s definition of distance-delivered courses, at least 75 percent of the instruction and interaction occurs via electronic communication, correspondence or equivalent mechanisms, with the faculty and students physically separated from each other.
  •  Interactive Video - Faculty and students are scheduled at a particular day/time at two or more campus sites and interactively use audio, computer and video connections to meet synchronously. Lectures are not recorded and shared.
  • In Person w/streaming online capability - Faculty and students are scheduled to meet synchronously in a particular classroom or laboratory during a set day/time.  Class sessions can be attended in person or viewed live, but are also recorded and shared with all students for later access.
  • Online - Online courses let students and faculty interact with each other as class members entirely over the Internet.  Instructional courseware includes but is not limited to web pages, discussion groups and UWGB e-mail.  Online courses do not meet at a particular time or place, but they are structured within the academic semester timeframe and require class participation several times each week. Online classes do not require synchronous meetings.
  • Virtual Classroom – Faculty and all enrolled students interact with each other as class members synchronously and entirely over the Internet during a set day/time.  Faculty and students converse and interact with each other’s coursework while viewing each other in a real-time classroom, setting leveraging a tool like Blackboard Collaborate, Skype or WebEx.
