Technology enables new forms of educational content delivery. Between traditional classroom instruction and online-only classes lies a spectrum of web and technology-enabled methods of learning. The Higher Education Survey gathered data from community institutions on the mixture of various intensities of technology-enabled instructional environments. The chart above shows the mix of higher education curriculum delivery among higher education institutions in the community. Traditional: Course where no online technology used. Content is delivered in writing or orally. Web-facilitated – Course that uses web-based technology to facilitate what is essentially a face-to-face course. May use a course management system or web pages to post the syllabus and assignments. Blended – Course that blends online and face-to-face delivery. Substantial portion of the content is delivered online, uses online discussions, and has few face-to-face meetings. Online – Course where most or all of the content is delivered online. Typically has no face-to-face meetings.
