Course Formats

North Seattle College (NSC) and all Seattle College District campuses offer both credit and non-credit courses that require few (if any) in-person, on-campus meetings. The following list defines the modes of study that are included in the broad category of elearning.

Fully and Primarily Online (eL)

Some elearning courses are fully online and use web-based tools for 100 percent of the instruction and interaction between instructor and students. These fully online classes do not require campus visits although some may require exams taken on campus or proctored elsewhere with pre-approval. A few primarily online classes do have a few required campus meetings (usually three or four per quarter). Many online courses utilize the “Canvas” online learning management system.

Hybrid Classes (eL/OC)

Hybrid courses combine online instruction and interaction with reduced face-to-face campus class time. Most hybrid classes meet once or twice a week for a total of three hours of face-to-face time, with the remaining class activity such as discussion and content delivery taking place online at the times when the student can log in. Some hybrid classes meet face-to-face on weekends for lab work.  

Evening Degree Hybrid Classes (H) 

Attend class on the first scheduled class day of the quarter for evening degree hybrid classes. The course mode is hybrid instruction—partly on campus, F2F (one night a week) with the rest of class time spent at the student’s convenience. This format maximizes student success and participation (replacing a portion of campus meetings with online meetings in Canvas.) This incorporates asynchronous participation to capture the words, contributions and coursework of all students.

The Evening Degree Program gives students with work and personal obligations the opportunity to complete an A.A. or A.B. degree in two years by attending evening face-to-face sessions three nights a week with the rest of the time spent in online activities and traditional homework sessions.

Web Enhanced (WE)

A web-enhanced course is an on-campus course meeting face-to-face that does not replace any face-to-face seat time with any web-based tools. A component of the course does require access to the web during non-classroom time. The elearning tools used and the time required are specific to the course.

Optional (OT)

An optional course is one in which the student can choose to attend class on campus face-to-face or take the class using online course tools. (Both of the options are included within one item number.)
