Online Instruction: course is taught asynchronously and fully online using Canvas, with the option for limited synchronous instruction via Zoom or Adobe Connect. 

Hybrid Instruction: course is taught using a combination of both asynchronous using Canvas and synchronous instruction via Zoom or Adobe Connect.  

Remote Instruction: course is taught in real-time using Zoom or Adobe Connect. Class sessions are scheduled on specific day(s) and time(s). Students access course through Canvas and use integrated tools such as Zoom or Adobe Connect to join the live interactive classroom. Students may ask questions and interact in real-time with the instructor. The live sessions can be recorded so students may view them at a later time.   

Asynchronous: students engage a variety of learning materials posted on Canvas (that may include lectures, interactive discussion boards and quizzes) and interact with the instructor and other students using messaging tools.   
Synchronous: instruction occurs in-real time during a live, pre-scheduled Adobe Connect session(s) where instructors and students interact
