Description

F

Fully at a distance

All or nearly all of the class sessions are delivered via technology. The course does not require students to travel to a classroom for instruction; however, it might require students to travel to a site to attend an orientation or to take exams. (This is generally equivalent to delivering more than 95 percent of sessions via technology.)

P

Partially at a distance

Technology is used to deliver more than 50 percent of class sessions, but visits to a classroom (or similar site) are required. Note: Courses offered through two-way interactive video (GVNS), are coded as partially at a distance because students must meet at a designated location to attend classes.

H

Hybrid

Technology is used to deliver 50 percent or less of class sessions, but at least one class session is replaced by technology.

T

Technology enhanced

Technology is used in delivering instruction, but no class sessions are replaced by technology.

Null

No technology

No technology is used in delivering instruction.
