Miami University offers both online and hybrid courses. Online courses are those which are 100% online, whereas hybrid workshops combine the traditional face to face classroom experience with the flexibility of online. Online courses are required to promote learning that is comparable in quality to face-to-face courses.

For best practices in distance learning course design, see the Quality Matters rubric. For more information on best practice in process variable, consult the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) Framework.
