The University of Toledo Definitions for DL (Online) and BL Courses

Distance learning (DL) course: in an online course the student and instructor are separated by distance and connected via technology (Web, CD-ROM, ISDN lines, IP Video) for at least 70% of the course content and course interaction.

Blended (BL) course: a course is taught with both F2F components and online activities that utilize the best of both approaches to enhance student learning.  Seat time must be reduced so that online pedagogy can be seamlessly integrated into blended courses. To make full use of classrooms especially those mediated classrooms (such as echo rooms); the University of Toledo defines blended courses as courses with at least 50% reduction of seat time and 50% of its contents and activities being conducted outside the classroom.
