Online Course Designations

  1. A Fully Online Class (OF) is an online course offering in which all class sessions and exams are presented in an online environment. If a course meets at a specified time online, the course should list the day of the week and time in the Schedule of Classes. Fully online courses have no on campus meetings.
  2. A Campus Online Class is an online course offering in which most class sessions are presented in an online environment. Any face-to-face meetings are usually for activities such as orientation, special in-class presentations, exams or other in-class proofs of competency.
  3. A Hybrid Class (OH) is a course offering in which students attend class sessions on campus and in an online environment. The class typically meets approximately half online and half on campus.
  4. A Traditional Class is a course offering in which all or most of the class sessions take place on the CSUN campus. Most CSUN courses make use of some web-based tools to supplement or enhance a course, so even a traditional class may include online components and activities (e.g., view a syllabus, take quizzes/exams, participate in discussions).
