Types of Courses

Hybrid Courses

combine online instruction with limited in-person meetings throughout the semester. Students are either online or in-person at different times in the course.

Hyflex Courses

combine in-person classroom teaching with Zoom synchronous learning so students are accessing and participating in class at the same time using different formats. Check individual courses for asynchronous options.

Online Courses

take place 100% online via Canvas, without required in-person or Zoom meetings.

Synchronous Courses

are delivered through a combination of online and regularly-scheduled Zoom sessions. In synchronous classes, students must attend Zoom sessions and actively engage with each other and faculty in course activities and discussions.

Telepresence Courses

use a Telepresence classroom with the capability to connect to another classroom (or rooms), synchronously (at the same time), using videoconferencing equipment and software to support an interactive student learning experience. This delivery model enables students to be sitting in one of our many telepresence classrooms across Vermont and their faculty and peers to be in a different classroom miles away.
