What is the quality of a hybrid or online course?
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette places great emphasis on the consistency, continuity, and integrity of its learning environments. All electronic academic courses at the University are considered equivalent to traditional courses, are taught by regular and approved adjunct faculty, and adhere to all the same standards, prerequisites, and requirements as traditional sections of identical courses. Equivalency means the “totality of learning experiences for each learner should cover the same area, even if individual experiences might be quite different” (Simonson, 2007). Regardless of the delivery format, LEARNING is the primary aim with achievement of stated course and program learning outcomes as the primary assessment measure.
