E-Learning Course Modes

As you review course offerings and descriptions, you will see the codes below marking the different types of courses.

On-Campus (CAMP)

  • These courses meet on the Otis College campus.


Otis College eLearning Courses are defined as follows:

Blended Synchronous (BLSY)

  • Blended Learning courses “blend” on-campus teaching with online delivery. Some weeks are taught online and other weeks on-campus. The class meets at least 1/3 online or on-campus during the semester. During virtual instruction, the course contact will occur synchronously (at the same time) through the web-conference platform, Zoom. 

Blended Asynchronous (BLAY)

  • Blended Learning courses “blend” on-campus teaching with online delivery. Some weeks are taught online and other weeks on-campus. The class meets at least 1/3 online or on-campus during the semester. Students will work independently for a predetermined set of time to complete coursework by the due date. During virtual instruction, the course contact will occur asynchronously (not at the same time).

Online Synchronous (OLSY)

  • These courses provide 100% of instruction online. Some online classes may also include 1 - 2 weeks of an on-campus meeting. A component of the instruction will require meeting virtually with the instructor the same day and time through the web-conference platform, Zoom. The virtual course contact will occur synchronously (at the same time).

Online Asynchronous (OLAY)

  • These courses provide 100% of instruction online. Some online classes may also include 1 - 2 weeks of an on-campus meeting. Students will work independently for a predetermined set of time to complete coursework by the due date.  The virtual course contact will occur asynchronously (not at the same time).

HyFlex or All-Access (HYFX)

  • These courses allow students to participate in the same class choosing each week how they want to attend. They can attend on-campus, online synchronous, or online asynchronous. This type of course mode follows a student-centered attendance model (SEAM).
