What is

Course Delivery Method

A course delivery method is the way in which educational content is conveyed from instructor to students. There are three primary course delivery methods. Face-to-face is the traditional classroom delivery method, where all contact between instructors and students is in a physical classroom on campus. However, technology may be used for classroom interaction and students may be required to use computers to complete homework assignments. A second method is web-enhanced courses, which combine the traditional classroom delivery style with an institution’s learning management system (LMS). The LMS stores course materials that support specific curriculum objectives and all lectures are delivered in a physical classroom. The third primary method is online courses. They are administered synchronously or asynchronously through the institution’s LMS, and on-campus meetings are not required. However, they may require proctored in-person exams.
