Clinton College currently offers courses in the first three formats and defines these formats as:
- Traditional course (F2F): a course in which educational activities are delivered in a classroom or other face-to-face (F2F) environment
- Web-assisted course (WA): a course in which educational activities are delivered in a classroom or other face-to-face (F2F) environment at regular meeting times, while course educational activities and access to resources are extended beyond the face-to-face meeting by using technology such as a learning management system (LMS). Web-assisted courses offer faculty and student opportunities to extend their face-to-face work beyond the classroom meeting times through a learning management system (LMS). The course LMS is viewed as an additional classroom technology to support and enriched the face-to-face educational experience. The LMS chosen for this initiative is currently Moodle.
- Hybrid course (HY): a course in which educational activities are delivered in a classroom or F2F environment at planned and scheduled times, and some educational activities are delivered using technology such as a learning management system (LMS) at planned times. Online educational activities delivered through the LMS may comprise 30% to 50% of instructional time.
- Online course (OL): a course where all of the educational activities are delivered using technology and there are no required F2F meetings. (not Approved currently)
