Online courses are those courses where the content is delivered either asynchronously and/or synchronously via the Internet using a course or learning management system.
- Synchronous online courses may be broadcast from an on-campus location, and may even have students physically present within the on-ground classroom environment. These synchronous classes are considered to be online courses and are managed in the same manner as asynchronous online courses.
- Instructors of online courses are required to provide the same amount of direct instructional time that would be provided in a traditional on-ground course (examples of direct instruction include, but are not limited to: videos/lectures created by the course instructor, narrated PowerPoint presentations created by the course instructor, instructor participation in discussions, webinars, and online supplemental instruction).
Hybrid courses integrate face-to-face and online instruction in a complementary manner to combine the best features of both. This definition is provided for clarification only.
- Actual face-to-face class meeting times and locations are listed on the course schedule and a designation is made on the schedule which identifies the course as a hybrid course.
- The remaining ‘course time’ is comprised of direct instruction in an online environment in which content is delivered (examples include: videos, narrated PowerPoint presentations, discussions, live webinars), learning activities are structured and interaction occurs either synchronously and/or asynchronously, typically through MCC’s learning management system and/or one or more interactive technologies.
- All hybrid courses require students and instructors to have the same computer access, internet connectivity, hardware and software as online courses.
