Langston University is offering courses in four different formats:
- 1. Traditional face-to-face courses: These courses are 100% face-to-face with no online technology and content delivered to students orally or in writing.
2. Web-facilitated Courses:
Courses that are using a course management system or other web based software to facilitate and enhance the face-to-face courses. At Langston University these courses are offered in two different formats:
- a. Courses where students and faculty meet in a classroom setting physically like traditional face-to-face courses with the use of web based components. These courses are 100% face-to-face physically.
- b. Courses where students and instructors meet in a virtual online meeting room and conduct class activities such as lectures, presentations, Q/A and discussions. The structures of these courses are the same as part (a), with the exception that students will meet in a meeting room anywhere at a weekly assigned date and time. These courses are 100% face-to-face via online meeting rooms.
- 2. Web-facilitated Courses: Courses that are using a course management system or other web based software to facilitate and enhance the face-to-face courses. At Langston University these courses are offered in two different formats:
- 3. Blended Courses: These courses are designed to take advantage of both traditional face-to-face and online learning activities. A blended course is designed so that online learning activities will enhance, reinforce and compliment face-to-face components. Blended courses at Langston University will use the online learning activities built into Desire2Learn (D2L) Online Course Management System to enhance the traditional face-to-face components. Students attend classes face-to-face on time and participate in learning activities online. If there is a percentage of class time for online activities, it should clearly be stated on the syllabus what portion of the course will be online and what portion will be face-to-face.
- 4. Online Courses: These courses are totally online and students can access the course anywhere and anytime using a computer or a mobile device such as an iPad and Internet to access the course contents. The content of the online course is built in the course management system (D2L) and can be accessed by using their login, username and password. These courses have no physical face-to- face meetings.
