Primary Course Classifications

Face to Face Courses
Face-to-Face
Courses require students to meet 90% to 100% of the time on campus or at a designated off-campus location.   In a traditional face-to-face course, materials are delivered through lectures, interactive video/video-conferences, labs, Blackboard, clinical experiences, etc. 
(Note, F2F courses are permitted to experiment with one or two online weeks.)

  • Instructors have the option of conducting one online/asynchronous session via Blackboard or one online/synchronous meeting.
  • Students participating in a Face to Face Course must adhere to  Minimal Student Technical Requirements.
  • Instructors who choose to conduct one of these online sessions must clearly explain their expectations to their student during their first face to face class. 
Hybrid Courses
Hybrid Courses
require students to meet on campus for 50% or less of the scheduled classes.  The remaining time will be spent by students accessing course materials, engaging in learning activities or interacting through the Delaware Tech learning management system.  Students taking a hybrid course will need to meet the minimum student technology requirements.  (Note, courses that are a 50-50 split are considered hybrids.)
  • Instructors will conduct 50% or more of their classes asynchronously/online via Blackboard, or synchronously/online. In either event, the instructor must clearly explain their expectations for those online sessions to their students during their first face to face meeting. 
  • Students participating in a Hybrid Course must adhere to Minimum Student Technical Requirements.
  • The first class MUST be face to face
Online Courses
Online Courses
require that 100% of class meetings and course work occur online.  Online courses are a learning option for independent, self-motivated students. They are of the same quality and rigor as on-campus courses.  They are most appropriate for students who are self-directed and have at least moderate computer skills.  Students taking an online course will need to meet the minimum student technology requirements. 
  • Instructors will conduct all of their classes online using synchronous and asynchronous methods. The instructor must clearly articulate their expectations, either asynchronously or synchronously, for their online course to their students during the first five days of class. 
  • Students participating in a Hybrid Course must adhere to Minimum Student Technical Requirements.
  • Note: Students who enroll in an online class may not expect, or have planned for, a synchronous learning activity. Therefore, it is important (when scheduling a synchronous learning exercise) that the instructor be flexible in their timing, as well as sensitive to the scheduling needs of the student.

Additional Instructional Method Descriptions

Emporium
Emporium:
Students enrolled in emporium sections will meet with their instructors for one hour per week and will spend an additional three hours per week working in the math lab. Students in these sections will work at their own pace and have the option to complete more than one developmental course in a single semester. 

Emporium with Lecture


Emporium with Lecture:
Students enrolled in emporium with lecture sections will meet with their instructors for two hours per week and will spend an additional two hours per week working in the math lab. Students in these sections will receive mini-lectures on each module and will follow a predetermined pacing schedule to ensure course completion.

 Campus Section numbers

4 = Wilmington
5 = Stanton
6 = Dover
2 = Georgetown
 
Example:
ENG 101 - 601 = English course on the Dover Campus

Course Unique ID Number Explained:
Academic Year = 2017
Semesters;
Fall - 51
Spring - 52
Summer - 53
Course CRN Example = 12345 (Fall) 23456 (Spring) 34567 (Summer)
So unique course ID: 20165112345 = Fall 2013 Course
Leader numbers of CRNs start with the same 'last' number of the semester code. Example: 53 = Summer, so all Summer CRNs will start with 3.
