Blended course sections are to be placed in one of seven categories: OL10, OL25, OL33, OL50, OL67, OL75, and OL90.
In each case the number is the approximate percentage of meeting time replaced by out-of-class activities. These are
usually asynchronous online activities, but in some cases could be independent field or group work, as long as such
work is not scheduled time in the presence of the instructor. We’ll refer to these activities as “online” for short
in the rest of the page. These categories will be entered as codes in the attribute field for the section.
A written plan must be submitted to the department chair for any course section to be scheduled as blended, giving
the planned schedule of face-to-face meetings and describing the online activities. Changes or exceptions are
allowed for canceling a F2F meeting due to unforeseen circumstances, but not for scheduling additional F2F meetings
after registration begins.
Using the information provided in 2), the course must either show F2F meeting times in Banner via room scheduling
or provide the schedule of F2F meetings in the SSATEXT
or Section Text field. This information must be available to students at the
time of registration. If the course has one day that is
a designated for online (i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday
class, meets online every Friday) then there will also
need to be a second line added under Meeting Times and
the Building set as Web for that line.
The comments entered in the SSATEXT (or Comments) field
should reflect the specific dates, either when the class
meets or does not meets, whichever is shorter.
For international students who are required to take a certain minimum number of face-to-face courses, blended courses
in categories OL10,OL25, OL33, and OL50 will be considered face-to-face, while those in the other categories will
be considered online.

It is also about letting the students know what to expect so
they can plan their semester time accordingly.
