Types of Distance Learning Courses

Online (Internet) Courses

An Online (Internet) course is one in which students work within a virtual classroom environment called eCampus. The virtual environment provides a variety of tools through which students interact with their instructors and fellow classmates. It should be noted that Online (Internet) courses may have mandatory face-to-face sessions, such as proctored exams, orientation, reviews, and laboratories, which total no more than 15% of the instructional time. For detailed information, students should review the course syllabus for each of their Online courses.

In the course schedule, Online (Internet) course section numbers begin with “N.”

Blended (Hybrid) Courses

A Blended (Hybrid) course is one in which the majority (more than 50% but less than 85%) of planned instruction occurs when the instructor and student(s) are not in the same place. Students are required to attend the scheduled face-to-face class sessions in addition to participating in the online class sessions facilitated through eCampus, which is Blinn College’s learning management system. For detailed information, students should review the course syllabus for each of their Blended courses.

In the course schedule, Blended (Hybrid) course section numbers begin with “B.”

Interactive Video Courses

An Interactive Video course is one in which the instructor originates the course on one campus and the students are located at another site or campus (remote sites).
