Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses integrate face-to-face and online instruction in a complementary manner to combine the best features of both. This definition is provided for clarification only, but it should be noted that a hybrid course is not officially considered to be a distance education course.

  • Face-to-face time is at least 50% of that for a traditionally delivered on-ground course.
  • Actual face-to-face class meeting times and locations are listed on the course schedule and a designation is made on the schedule which identifies the course as a hybrid course.
  • The remaining ‘course time’ is comprised of direct instruction in an online environment in which content is delivered (examples include: videos, narrated PowerPoint presentations, discussions, live webinars), learning activities are structured and interaction occurs either synchronously and/or asynchronously, typically through MCC’s learning management system and/or one or more interactive technologies.
  • All hybrid courses require students and instructors to have the same computer access, internet connectivity, hardware and software as online courses.

Online Courses

  • Online courses are those courses where the content is delivered either asynchronously and/or synchronously via the Internet using a course or learning management system.
  • Students may be required to participate in non-online learning or assessment activities for some courses and/or programs (examples include proctored exams, site visits, and/or interviews).
  • Synchronous online courses may be broadcast from an on-campus location, and may even have students physically present within the on-ground classroom environment. These synchronous classes are considered to be online courses and are managed in the same manner as asynchronous online courses.
  • Instructors of online courses are required to provide the same amount of direct instructional time that would be provided in a traditional on-ground course (examples of direct instruction include, but are not limited to: videos/lectures created by the course instructor, narrated PowerPoint presentations created by the course instructor, instructor participation in discussions, webinars, and online supplemental instruction).

Traditional Ground Classes

  • These classes are campus-based and web-enhanced.
  • Web-enhanced courses utilize the learning management system through which students can access course syllabi, instructional materials, grades, and communicate with their instructor.

Web-enhanced Courses

All MCC traditionally-delivered on-ground (non-distance education) academic credit courses are web-enhanced courses. This definition is provided for clarification only, but it should be noted that a web-enhanced course is not officially considered to be a distance education course.

  • Web-enhanced courses are campus or center based, with face-to-face instruction, and utilize MCC’s learning management system (LMS) through which students can access course syllabi and other instructional materials (i.e. ‘handouts’, assignments, assessments, etc.).
  • The LMS also provides students with direct online access to grades as well as facilitates communication with the course instructor(s).
  • Class meeting times and locations for these courses are listed in the course schedule.
  • All resident and associate faculty are required to web-enhance their traditionally-delivered on-ground courses. At a minimum, faculty in traditionally-delivered on-ground courses must post the course syllabus and update student grades on a weekly basis in the LMS. In efforts to move toward more paperless operations, faculty should also post all handouts in an electronic format on the LMS.
