Online Course-Synchronous- This refers to an online courses that include real-time interaction between the instructor and the student(s).
VTC (Video Teleconference) Course-Theses courses meet by two-way video conference.

VTC courses may utilize some online content and interactions, but the primary instruction occurs by VTC.
Direct Classroom Instruction- Direct Classroom Instruction refers to instruction delivered with the instructor and the student(s) in the same room. These are often traditionally delivered semester courses, but the term may also be used to describe the instructional model of an intensive or describe a portion of a hybrid course.
