Teaching Modalities

At the college, there are four different modalities that you can teach your courses in. Traditional, web enabled, blended and online. The modalities are defined as:

Online Courses: These are courses that are fully online with no face-to-face class meetings. All course content is placed within the College’s LMS. Testing is done online. Find out about getting certified to teach online at our FACULTY ACADEMY.

Blended/Hybrid Courses: These are courses that have both face-to-face and online instruction. Some content is placed within the College’s LMS and content can also be provided during face-to-face instruction. Testing can be online and/or face-to-face. Find out about getting certified to teach a blended course at our FACULTY ACADEMY

Web Enabled:  Traditional, face-to-face lecture courses that use the LMS as supplemental only. The amount of content placed in the LMS varies based upon the instructor. All courses at Suffolk have a course shell in Blackboard.

Traditional (or Face-to-Face): These are the traditional lecture-based courses that meet on campus. All courses at Suffolk have a course shell in Blackboard, whether the instructor chooses to use it or not.
