BLENDED / ONLINE COURSES
Our blended courses integrate a combination of classroom and online activities.
Half of classroom time is replaced with activities through Moodle, blogs etc.. Students complete assignments online in lieu of maintaining the full four hours + of class time and meet face-to-face for two hours once a week.
Online learning activities include writing papers, posting comments to online discussion forums, recording individual oral presentations, etc. While students can generally choose when and where to complete online assignments, there are usually deadlines for homework.
Course materials include a textbook, a workbook, podcasts, video demonstrations, PowerPoint presentations, Web resources, etc.
These courses allow for more active learning and flexible scheduling, while maintaining the face-to-face contact characteristic of the classroom.
Students are required to attend a certain number of class meetings.
