What Are Online Classes?

Asynchronus

Fully Online “Asynchronous” Course: An online course that requires no face-to-face meetings on campus; all course activities are conducted via the internet with no live lecture components. Students taking these courses must have reliable access to a computer and an internet connection. These courses are NOT truly self-paced as they are scheduled to run concurrent with on-campus courses during the standard fall, spring, and summer semesters. Students will gain access to their classes through the college approved LMS. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Interactive

Interactive Web Course (IWC): An interactive web-conference course is offered synchronously using web-conferencing software. Class sessions are scheduled and virtually attended by students at specific dates and times. Students may use any computer but must have access to reliable internet, headphones/speaker, microphone, and web camera. All course content will be administered digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system (Canvas). Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Falcon lecture

FalconFlex Lecture: FalconFlex is a course design model that that combines face-to-face (LEC) and interactive web conference learning (IWC) in a flexible course. A Falconflex/LEC course meets face-to-face at regular meeting times and in a physical classroom or lab space, with a component for web conference students to also attend synchronously via interactive web conference. All course materials (excluding lectures) will be available digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Falcon interactive

FalconFlex Interactive Web-conference: FalconFlex is a course design model that combines face-to-face (LEC) and interactive web conference learning (IWC) in a flexible course. A hyflex/interactive web-conference course is offered synchronously using web-conferencing software. Class sessions are scheduled and virtually attended by students at regular meeting times via web conference software. Students must have access to a computer, reliable internet, headphones/speaker, microphone, and web camera. All course materials (excluding lectures) will be available digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Hybrid

Hybrid Course: A hybrid class is a combination of face-to-face classroom instruction and asynchronous online instruction. A portion of the instruction is provided online (between 25% and 75%), but some regular face-to-face instruction is still required. Face-to-face time requirements will vary between hybrid courses and sections. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.
