Hybrid and Online Course Definitions

New definitions for hybrid and online courses have recently been approved and shall take effect for the spring 2020 semester.

Online synchronous (SYNC): An online synchronous course holds no face-to-face sessions; however, a minimum of twenty-five percent (25%) of course sessions are conducted synchronously (at same time online). Online courses use the current, official college learning management system as the primary platform for content delivery and communication.

Online asynchronous (ASYNC): An online asynchronous course holds no face-to-face or synchronous (at same time online) sessions. Online courses use the current, official college learning management system as the primary platform for content delivery and communication.

A Hybrid Course (HYB) holds a minimum twenty-five percent (25%) of meetings face-to-face with remaining course sessions held online, either synchronously or asynchronously. An initial, introductory face-to-face or online meeting may or may not be required. Hybrid courses use the current, official college learning management system as the primary platform for content delivery and communication.
