ELECTRONICALLY-DELIVERED LEARNING

Electronically-delivered course instructors facilitate the same material as taught in the traditional classroom, which require the same amount of work and time commitment. Students may learn through reading assignments, viewing videos, listening to short lectures, viewing PowerPoints alongside reading of the text, participating in discussion forums, taking quizzes and exams and completing other required assignments.

UACCM offers several types of electronically-delivered courses designed to give students the opportunity for quality education within a virtual environment:

Hybrid Courses (HYB)

Instruction and content are delivered utilizing both face-to-face instruction and some form of technology where student and faculty member are separated by time, space, or both. The hybrid course reduces the amount of face-to-face seat time for the student on campus. The UACCM instructor is required to administer a proctored comprehensive final exam that counts for a significant percent of the semester grade.

Multi-Mode Courses (MM)

In a multiple-mode course, students will either participate online or attend class in person during the days and times indicated on their schedule. Students may be required to be on campus for some components of the course and should refer to the course syllabus for more information. The UACCM instructor is required to administer a proctored comprehensive final exam that counts for a significant percent of the semester grade.

Synchronous Courses (SYNC)

In a synchronous course, students will participate online during the days and times indicated on their schedule. Students may be required to be on campus for some components of the course and should refer to the course syllabus for more information. The UACCM instructor is required to administer a proctored comprehensive final exam that counts for a significant percent of the semester grade.

Web Courses (WEB)

Instruction and content are delivered primarily utilizing some form of technology where student and faculty member are separated by time, space, or both. The UACCM instructor is required to administer a proctored comprehensive final exam that counts for a significant percent of the semester grade.

Web-Enhanced Courses

Instruction and content are delivered utilizing both face-to-face instruction and some form of technology where student and faculty member are separated by time, space, or both. The web-enhanced course does not reduce the amount of face-to-face seat time for the student on campus. Instruction and content are delivered in a face-to-face class, with an instructor at the regular scheduled day, time, and location.

Some component(s) of the course will require students to access and submit coursework through the LMS. All scheduled tests/exams in a web-enhanced course must be given face-to-face.

Synchronous courses will take place in Blackboard Collaborate, allowing multiple people to be in the same environment together. While in Blackboard Collaborate, students will be able to share their webcam and microphone to interact with the instructor and other students. Course materials will be accessed by logging in directly to Blackboard.
