Flexible Definitions

Flexible courses support teaching and learning across different places (in-person "roomers" and online "zoomers") and/or different times (synchronous, in real-time; asynchronous, on your own time). The combinations of delivery methods differ, based on campus policies and decisions, department and faculty preferences, and sometimes student choice. We have created a spreadsheet that outlines various course delivery combinations This link opens an external website in a new tab found throughout the Cal State system. The options become more flexible as more delivery modes are offered and as more student choice is allowed.
