Online Learning

Classroom Course: Course activity is organized around scheduled class meetings

Synchronous Distributed Course: Web-based technologies are used to extend classroom to students at remote sites in real time 

Web-Enhanced Course: Online course activity complements class sessions without reducing the number of required class meetings

Blended (also called Hybrid) Classroom Course: Online activity is mixed with classroom meetings, replacing a significant percentage, but not all required face-to-face instructional activities 

Blended (also called Hybrid) Online Course: Most course activity is done online, but there are some required face-to-face instructional activities, such as lectures, discussions, labs, or other in-person learning activities.

Online Course: All course activity is done online; there are no required face-to-face sessions within the course and no requirements for on-campus activity

Flexible Mode or Multi-Access Course: Offers multiple delivery modes so that students can choose which delivery mode(s) to use for instructional and other learning purposes.

The most common delivery formats at VIU include the classroom, web-enhanced, blended classroom and online courses.
