Online Course Types

What's the difference between evening, online, hybrid, enhanced and informational?

Evening

Classes held after 4 pm.

See a list of current evening courses.

Online

Online courses generally do not have a face-to-face component. Students complete all course work via the Internet, by going to the college's learning management system, logging in with a username and password, and accessing their virtual classroom.

See a list of current online courses.

Hybrid

Hybrid courses blend face-to-face interaction with online participation and learning. For example: students go online, read lessons, take a practice quiz, come to a face-to-face class and talk about what they learned online.

See a list of current hybrid courses.

Enhanced

Some face-to-face courses have an additional required online component. For example: a face-to-face instructor may require you to access reading, assignment material or submit an assignment online.

Informational

Some face-to-face courses have an additional non-required online component. For example: a face-to-face instructor makes all syllabus and class handouts available for download via a website.
