Types of Online Courses

Online Courses

Online courses are completed entirely online within a virtual classroom environment, where students interact with their instructors and fellow classmates using a variety of virtual tools. Students should note that online courses may require mandatory face-to-face sessions, such as proctored exams, orientation, reviews, and laboratories, which should total no more than 15 percent of the instructional time. For detailed information, students should review the course syllabus for each of their online courses.

In the course schedule, online course section numbers begin with “N.”

Blended (Hybrid) Courses

Blended courses combine online learning with traditional classroom instruction. In a blended course, the majority (more than 50 percent but less than 85 percent) of planned instruction occurs virtually. Students are required to attend the scheduled face-to-face class sessions in addition to participating in the online class sessions facilitated through eCampus, Blinn’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.”
