  • Online classes are fully online with no required dates/times for meeting. (There still may be deadlines assigned for tests, discussions, and assignments.)
  • Hybrid classes have some of the face-to-face class time replaced with online activities.
  • Virtual classes meet on a specific schedule, but may use online platforms such as Zoom, WebEx, or others.
  • Hybrid/Virtual classes meet virtually on a specific day/time for part of the class, with an online component for the rest.
