Online course: A course taught entirely online. Students are not required to come to campus at any point during the semester.
Web-blended course: The course format has at least one of the course credits (15 hours) online and at least one credit in the classroom. The time spent face-to-face is lessened because of the online component of the course.
Web-enhanced course: An instructor uses Blackboard to enhance their fully face-to-face course. Classroom time is not lessened because of the online component. Blackboard is often used to web-enhance a course by posting the syllabus or other documents or to use the grade book feature.
Prior to a semester, instructors will need to determine whether or not they will be using Blackboard to web-enhance their course(s). Once that decision has been made, the course needs to be coded as web-enhanced in Banner. This code will trigger the course to be automatically created in Blackboard when courses are loaded for the upcoming semester. Instructors should contact the person responsible for scheduling in their area to have the course(s) coded correctly. NOTE: Online and web-blended courses are already coded in Banner and therefore will have course shells automatically created.
