Different Learners Have More Ways to Learn.
UT offers several options in the College Credit Plus Program, so students can take courses that best suit their schedule and learning preference. All options meet the same rigid learning objectives and rigors of a college course but they have been created to maximize ease and efficiency of course delivery in a way that interests and engages the student.
Blended-traditional: In this kind of class — also known as a flipped classroom — students complete much of their reading and learning using online technology, such as watching videos and posting on the class message board. There is a set time to meet in-person on campus, which is focused on discussions and group projects. The advantage of this type of class is that it provides the best of both worlds; the convenience of online learning and the value of personal interaction and the campus experience. This is also where some fun activities can come in, such as using the scientific labs and facilities on campus or taking a field trip to the Toledo Museum of Art, or the Toledo Zoo.
Blended-interactive: In these types of courses, students go online to read content or complete assignments at their convenience. Then, the class “meets” for learning and discussions via real-time live video presentations that allow the students and faculty to interact from different locations as if they were in the same room. Online activities will include; videos and reading assignments, threaded discussions, written assignments and group projects.
One hundred percent online: This course offering means students complete all of their work in an online environment; there is no in-person classroom time. Students complete most of their course content and assignments on their own time; sometimes, a live chat may be held. UT is among the schools nationwide with the largest online course offerings, with nearly five hundred available and more than one hundred thirty-five of those being entry level.
In-person, on-campus: In this type of course, students attend class on UT’s campus. They participate in lectures, class discussions, assignments and tests in the classroom.
Dual Credit Courses taught at the high school: Some college courses can also be taken at the high school and are taught by a teacher in that high school if the teacher has the appropriate credentials in the content area and has been approved by the chairperson of the course of study at UT. A UT faculty mentor is assigned to ensure the syllabus and course requirements meet the rigor of the course offered at the University. These courses have the same content and level of difficulty as classes offered to university students.This dual credit format requires a separate agreement between the high school and the University and usually requires a minimum number of students. Students can only participate if their high school has an agreement with UT and approves the student's participation.
