Distinguishing characteristics of online program (as submitted by school)

We offer a blended model with on-line delivery augmented by targeted face-to-face sessions. We focus on visiting students at their sites thus informing the College as well as the student. This is consistent with the college’s focus on impact and collaboration. We engage in both asynchronous and synchronous deliveries and when we teach in real time we use multiple technologies including Facebook, wikis, Pinterest, Prezi, Canvas, and new Web 2.0 to further augment our delivery models.
