Delivery Modes and Definitions (Course Modalities)

Delivery Modes are used by departments to provide information regarding how a course will function. A complete picture of course functionality is achieved by reviewing the course Delivery Mode, Time/Location information, and supplemental Registration Information (where applicable.) 

In the photo examples below, Delivery Mode is framed in black, Delivery Mode definition is framed in gold, and Time/Location information is framed in dark grey. 

Delivery Modes

Face to Face - This course will be held in person in a University Classroom or instructional space.

Hybrid with Student Rotation - A flexible course where students will rotate on a set schedule between face to face and virtual instruction. It is expected that 50% of the instruction will be in person. The course will include at least two time/location lines: one denoting the on campus meeting pattern, another with the same (synchronous) meeting pattern with World Wide Web.

Hybrid without Student Rotation - A flexible course where students will have both face to face and virtual instruction. Because the course does not have a rotation schedule, all enrolled students will be in the classroom at the same time. The Time/location information will include at least two time/location lines: one denoting the on campus meeting pattern, another with either synchronous or asynchronous World Wide Web.

Individualized Experience - An individual or small group format including but not limited to internships, independent study, or research projects with faculty or off-campus partners.

Web - This course will be taught entirely online. Asynchronous Web is indicated with ARR/World Wide Web in the time/location field. Synchronous Web is indicated by listing a specific day/time meeting pattern with World Wide Web. A Web course can be both synchronous and asynchronous. If that is the case, two time/location lines should be present.
