Instruction Mode: "Where" classes are offered; the format in which a course is taught / delivered; each section of a course has a single instruction mode.
Distance Learning: education that uses one or more technologies to deliver instruction to students who are separated from the instructor [sic - virtual classroom/lab] and to support regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor synchronously or asynchronously. Technologies used for instruction may include the following: Internet; one-way and two-way transmissions through open broadcasts, closed circuit, cable, microwave, broadband lines, fiber optics, satellite or wireless communication devices; audio conferencing; and video cassette, DVDs, and CD-ROMs, if the cassette, DVDs and CD-ROMs are used in a course in conjunction with the technologies listed above.
Classroom-Based: education that may use the technologies listed above to deliver instruction to students who are not separated from the instructor during such delivery, i.e., students and instructors meet in a physical location.
