The Academic Computing and Online Course Support department helps BSU faculty and students in supporting instruction and learning through various delivery methods. Utilizing the rich tradition and quality instructional portfolio developed by Bowie State University faculty, we aim to support development and growth of a plethora of instructional media and information delivery to our students.
We aim to support faculty and students through:
- Traditional instruction: face-to-face or web-enhanced courses in which the bulk of teaching occurs through scheduled meetings. The web component is used for creating a basic presence online and some activities can be supplemented with the tools offered by the learning management system.
- Electronically delivered: courses intentionally designed to be offered entirely online, in which the online activities must supply equivalent or better forms of engaging students in learning than their traditional counterparts.
- Online blended or hybrid: includes courses in which 50% or more of the instruction and learning activities are carried out online, while the remainder occurs through scheduled meetings. A criterion for these courses is that the "sit time" of the student is reduced by at least 50% with respect to their traditional instruction counterparts.
