Online, Hybrid and Videoconferencing Courses

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses (also called blended courses) combine face-to-face sessions and online instruction. The pattern of specific meeting times for face-to-face sessions varies by course.

Videoconferencing Courses

Northeastern Illinois University offers selected courses that are delivered through a two-way interactive video teleconferencing network. A course that is offered on the network will be identified as a “Videoconferencing Course”.
