Fall 2020 Learning Types

Asynchronous

These courses utilize recorded instruction that does not occur at the same place or at the same time (on your own time).

Asynchronous courses often have an "Arranged Time" and "World Wide Web" listed as the location.  Additionally, they will have a Delivery Mode of "Web" and an explanation of Asynchronous Learning Type.

Asynchronous Web Example

This entry should mean that the student can view the section lecture or activity at the time of their choice.

Synchronous

These courses utilize real-time online instruction at a specified day and time.

Synchronous courses often have specified time and "World Wide Web" listed as the location.  Additionally, they will have a Delivery Mode of "Web" and an explanation of Synchronous Learning Type.

Synchronous ACCT:2100:0A02 Example

This entry should mean that students will need to be logged on at this time for synchronous lecture or activity with the class.

Blended (Fully online)

These online courses have components of both synchronous and asynchronous modalities which utilize instruction on your own time as well as at a specified day and time.

Blended courses will have both a synchronous (specified time/World Wide Web location) and asynchronous (Arranged Time/World Wide Web location) line.

Blended DANC:1070 Example

There may also be more information in the Registration Information area within MyUI explaining how students will be rotated.

Blended (Online and On Campus) "Hybrid"

These hybrid courses have components of synchronous or asynchronous modalities in combination with face-to-face instruction in a classroom.

Hybrid courses often have two lines. One time/location line will be synchronous with a specified time and "World Wide Web" listed as the location.  The other time and location line will have a face-to-face meeting pattern with a specified time and location. Additionally, they will have Delivery Modes "Web" and "Face-to-Face" as well as an explanation of Blended Learning Type.
