The Gray Line Between Web Assisted and Blended Courses
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
We have been wrestling with how to best define the line between a traditional face-to-face course with web assistance and the online modality of blended learning. A number of faculty in traditional classes are leaning heavily on the LMS to handle exams, discussions, etc… beyond the scope of what we would consider a face-to-face course.
We would appreciate any feedback on how your institution: defines the difference in modality; delineates what activity is appropriate to a web-assisted modality as well as what is not appropriate; and how you let students know what to expect from a given course when signing up for a ‘traditional’ course that may have online components.
