Online Course Definitions

Enhanced Course – is a traditional face-to-face course that meets in the physical classroom. Technology is used to enhance the content that is delivered in the physical classroom. Course materials and hand-outs such as the syllabus, reading materials or Power Point presentations are posted in the course shell on the ANGEL LMS. Students are expected to attend all classes. Textbook or e-textbook may or may not be used. 

Partially Online Course (also known as a blended or hybrid course) - combines face-to-face classroom instruction with computer-based learning. Partially Online courses may mean a significant part of the course content will be delivered online via the course shell on the ANGEL LMS thus possibly reducing classroom seat time. Technology is used to enhance the course content as well as to replace some in-class face-to-face content delivery via the ANGEL LMS, Tegrity, WIMBA or other university approved content delivery systems. Students are expected to attend the face-to-face classes as scheduled and cover the material for the online portion either at a scheduled time (synchronous) OR on the students own schedule (asynchronous). Textbook or e-textbook may or may not be used. ANGEL LMS components that are typically utilized in a Partially Online Course can be but are not limited to: gradable assessments, discussion groups, closed course e-mail, group projects, Tegrity lectures, WIMBA Live classroom meetings, etc. PARTIALLY ONLINE COURSES ARE POSTED IN THE PRINTED SCHEDULE AS PARTIALLY ONLINE SO THAT STUDENTS MAY HAVE THE ADVANCE EXPECTATION THAT THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO UTILIZE TECHNOLOGY.

Fully Online Course – a course that does not have classroom meetings with the possible exception of an orientation day at the start of the semester (in a classroom or in the professor’s office) and/or scheduled exams in a lab or testing center. All course content is delivered via the ANGEL LMS and/or Tegrity and/or WIMBA or other university approved content delivery systems. Students are expected to cover the material for the online classes either at a scheduled time (synchronous) OR on the students own schedule (asynchronous). Textbook or e-textbook may or may not be used. ANGEL LMS components that are typically utilized in a Fully Online Course can be but are not limited to: gradable assessments, discussion groups, closed course e-mail, group projects Tegrity lectures, WIMBA Live classroom meetings, etc. FULLY ONLINE COURSES ARE POSTED IN THE PRINTED SCHEDULE AS FULLY ONLINE SO THAT STUDENTS MAY HAVE THE ADVANCE EXPECTATION THAT THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO UTILIZE TECHNOLOGY.

 “The undergraduate education in music that I received from Henderson has changed my life by opening doors for me both educationally and professionally. It prepared me for success by giving me the tools necessary to be a successful music educator. My BME achieved at Henderson afforded me opportunities for success in graduate and post graduate studies as well as professional advancement in addition to allowing my family and me the employment and thus financial security that is so precarious today without such educational opportunities. I am grateful to Henderson State University.”
