Types of  Courses Offered

Traditional Online

Sometimes called asynchronous online learning. This type of course happens entirely online, through Blackboard, without virtual meeting times. Your instructor will provide materials for reading, lectures for viewing, assignments, and exams for evaluation. You will have the ability to access and satisfy these requirements within a flexible time frame with clear deadlines. Methods of asynchronous online learning include self-guided lesson modules, streaming video content, virtual libraries, posted lecture notes, and exchanges across discussion boards.

Online w/Scheduled Meet Times

Sometimes called synchronous online learning. This type of course incorporates the kind of learning that happens in real time. The schedule shows you the day and the time, but the place is online. This means that you, your classmates, and your instructor interact in a virtual environment, through Blackboard, at a specific time. You will need to make room in your weekly schedule for these classes the same way you would a traditional face-to-face class. Methods of synchronous online learning include video conferencing, teleconferencing, live chatting, and live-streaming lectures as well as online materials such as readings, videos. Online submission of assignments may be required.

Hybrid - On and Off Campus

A hybrid course has an online component and an on-campus component. The schedule shows you the day, time, and location of your on-campus requirement. The online requirements are made available through Blackboard. Class size will be carefully structured to limit the number of people in one space at a time. Careful social distancing protocols will be followed.

Traditional On-Campus

Traditional On-Campus courses will meet according to the published schedule in the assigned locations. Class size will be carefully structured to limit the number of people in one space at a time. Careful social distancing protocols will be followed.

Independent Study

An independent study project is an organized experience independently pursued by a student under the direction of a faulty member. Independent studies require an individual recommendation by the appropriate Division Dean and approval by the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
