Traditional classes (also known as face-to-face classes) meet on campus at designated days and times. All instruction, coursework (with the exception of homework), and testing is done in the classroom setting with the professor.
Blended classes (also known as hybrid classes) meet on campus at designated days and times, but also utilize technology outside of the classroom. For example, a traditional class may meet Tuesday & Thursday from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m.That same class offered as a hybrid would meet only one day per week. The rest of the coursework would be done online via the College’s learning management system, Canvas. This is an excellent option for students who prefer regular interaction with their teacher and classmates and are nervous about a fully online class.
Online classes (also known as distance learning classes) allow students the flexibility of learning anywhere and anytime. All instruction, coursework, and testing is done online via the College’s learning management system, Canvas (unless specified in the professor’s syllabus). Students interact with their professor and classmates in a virtual classroom by participating in assignments, forum discussions, reading materials, viewing videos and taking online exams.
Blended courses are denoted by an HB in the section number and online courses with an OL. For example, ENG-101-01HB or ENG-101-OL9.
