Definition of Face-to-Face, Online and Hybrid Courses

Face-to-Face - Students meet with the instructor at regularly scheduled times (synchronous learning), primarily in a classroom. Students in face-to-face courses will normally be expected to be physically present for all or part of the term/semester (will have classroom and day/times).

Synchronous Remote - Students meet via videoconferencing (e.g., Zoom) or other appropriate instructional technology at regularly scheduled times (synchronous learning) (will have day/times).

Online - Students do not meet with the instructor at predetermined times (asynchronous learning). Online courses do not require students to be physically present at any point during the term (will have no day/times).

Hybrid - Instruction is delivered through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Students in hybrid courses will normally be expected to be physically present for part of the term (will have a classroom and day/times).

* The codes and definitions above will be used for courses at the beginning of fall term/semester. Safety and public health concerns may require courses to shift their delivery modality during the semester. In all modalities instruction will be supplemented via technology such as Canvas, SUU's learning management system.
