Delivery Method Of Classes

Online/Digital Classes

Online

Fully Online (OLI): An online course is a course that is taught entirely over the internet. No on-site class meeting or on-site testing is required. Online courses allow students to log on and complete work within a certain time frame and according to deadlines set by the instructor. Materials are designed to facilitate online interaction with the instructor and students. Students should verify that they have the necessary equipment (computer and high speed connectivity) and skills (software applications and self discipline) to be successful in online courses.

Hybrid

Hybrid (HYB): Hybrid courses have fewer in-person course meetings than a course taught with the classroom/lecture structure. A portion of the course is delivered online and a portion is delivered on-site in a classroom.

IWC

Interactive Web Course (IWC): An interactive web-conference course is offered synchronously using web-conferencing software. Class sessions are scheduled and virtually attended by students at specific dates and times. Students may use any computer but must have access to reliable internet, a headphones/speaker, microphone, and web camera. All course content will be administered digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Hybrid-IWC

Hybrid-Interactive Web Conference (HYBIWC): An Hybrid-IWC course is a combination of face-to- face and synchronous, online web-conferencing class instruction. Class sessions are scheduled and attended by students at specific dates and times both in-person and virtually (between 25% and 75%). For the web conference portions, students are  required to have reliable internet, computer/device, webcam and microphone. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

FalconFlex/IWC

FalconFlex/IWC: FalconFlex is a course design model that combines face-to-face (LEC) and interactive web conference learning (IWC) in a flexible course. A hyflex/interactive web-conference course is offered synchronously using web-conferencing software. Class sessions are scheduled and virtually attended by students at regular meeting times via web conference software. Students must have access to a computer, reliable internet, headphones/ speaker, microphone, and web camera. All course materials (excluding lectures) will be available digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Falcon/LEC

FalconFlex/LEC: FalconFlex is a course design model that combines face-to-face (LEC) and interactive web conference learning (IWC) in a flexible course. A Falconflex/LEC course meets face-to-face at regular meeting times and in a physical classroom or lab space, with a component for web conference students to also attend synchronously via interactive web conference. All course materials (excluding lectures) will be available digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system. Online proctored tests may be required and will be defined during the registration process.

Hyflex

HyFlex: A HyFlex course is offered face-to-face (lecture), online synchronously (IWC: scheduled via Zoom or Teams), or online asynchronously (follows course schedule but no set meeting times). Students may choose the best delivery method for them throughout the semester and change it as needed. Students may use any computer but must have access to reliable internet, headphones/speaker, microphone, and a web camera. All course content will be administered digitally and can be accessed from the learning management system (Canvas). Assignments and exams offered through the online asynchronous portion of the class will be proctored through HonorLock.

Traditional Classes

Traditional lecture

Classroom/Lecture/Lecture Lab (CLA/LEC/LCLAB) The majority of CEI courses are offered on a face-to-face basis, which take place in a designated location such as a classroom.

Independent Study

Independent Study (IND) An independent study course is a course of organized instruction or research in which the instructional delivery is determined by a student and his/her instructor. These courses require the student to work independently to complete the course.

Less common

Less common course structures that are available through CEI are Assessment (ASM), Clinical (CLI), Distance Lecture (DLEC), Internship (INT), Practicum (PRA), and Supervised Work Experience (SWE). -- Please see academic advisor for more details.
