What is meant by online and hybrid?

Online course: All content/instruction is in an online format such as the Canvas course management system. An online course may be completed without the student coming to KCC’s campus. There is regular and substantive interaction between students and the instructor. A pre-approved proctor may be required when taking tests/assessments.

Hybrid courseInstruction/content occurs as a combination of face-to-face meetings at KCC and other (often online) means. Generally, 30 percent or more of the instruction/content is offered online or off-campus. When possible, face-to-face meeting dates are listed in the class schedule.

Technology requirements

When enrolled in online and hybrid courses, students should be ready to ask and answer questions, participate in discussions, and take tests online. These courses require a reliable Internet connection (preferably high-speed). Students in online and hybrid courses must understand basic computing, email, word processing and Internet navigation.
