In-Person: All class meetings are taught in person, with the instructor and all students in the same physical classroom.

This learning format features some scheduled in-person class meetings and some online interaction, either in real-time using Zoom or pre-recorded instruction, activities, discussion boards, or other course materials accessible through an online learning platform.

Instruction and interaction is fully online.
