Distance Education Delivery Formats

The College defines the following two formats for classess offered through the Distance Education Department:

  • Online - 100% of the course content is delivered online through the web-based Learning Management System - Instructure Canvas. No on-campus attendance is required for an online course.
  • Hybrid - a majority of the course content is delivered online, however a minimum of one on-campus attendance is required. This on-campus attendance requirement is described in the note included with each course in the class schedule for each semester. This may be an orientation, online final exam, or a series of meetings may be required.
