Instruction Mode Definitions
Instruction modes indicate the delivery method of courses.
The courses are separated into general categories of online, distance, correspondence, and face-to-face, then subdivided by course teaching method. For example, would you rather enroll in a 100 percent online course with no established meeting times or a 51 to 74 percent online course with some face-to-face meetings with your instructor? Delivery methods explain how course instruction is delivered to students.
