Online Instruction

CLSCC @ A Distance

Cleveland State offers many convenient ways to take courses beyond the traditional classroom experience. No matter what your situation is, Cleveland State has an option for you that offers convenient learning experiences that allow you to take courses where and when you need them.

There are six main modes of distance courses that we offer: Hybrid Synchronous and Asynchronous, Online Synchronous and Asynchronous, Synchronous Video and TN eCampus.

​Hybrid Synchronous Courses

These courses use a mix of instructional methods where no one method equals over 90 percent of the content delivery. A portion of the course meets in person at a specific on-ground location and specific meeting time and a portion is delivered online at a specific meeting time. Hybrid Synchronous courses are designated by a 200-series section number (ex. PSYC 1030 201).

Hybrid Asynchronous Courses

These courses also use a mix of instructional methods where no one instructional method equals over 90 percent of the content delivery. A portion of the course meets in person at a specific on-ground location at a specific time. The remaining portion requires coursework to be completed online with no specific meeting time. Hybrid Asynchronous courses are designated by a 300-series section number (ex. PSYC 1030 301).

Online Synchronous

In these courses, all instruction is delivered remotely utilizing web-based technology. There is no specific meeting location but there is a specific meeting time. Online Synchronous courses are designated by a 500-series section number (ex. PSYC 1030 501).

Online Asynchronous

In these courses, all instruction is delivered remotely utilizing web-based technology. There is no specific meeting time or location. All coursework is completed online. Online Asynchronous courses are designated by a 600-series section number (ex. PSYC 1030 601).

Synchronous Video

Synchronous Video courses are live broadcasts with an instructor teaching at one location and the students receiving the information at another campus, home or any other location. These classes are real time and have specific days and times associated with the delivery of the class. These classes run through a virtual meeting platform like Zoom or Google Meet. Synchronous video courses are designated by an 800-series section number (ex. PSYC 1030 801).

TN eCampus

TN eCampus courses run similarly to the regular online courses. The difference is that your instructor could be from a different Tennessee college or university. You will also login to a different site to access your course. There are additional fees associated with taking TN eCampus courses. TN eCampus courses are designated by an “R” in the section number (ex. PSYC 1030 R50)

Students participating in any of these distance methods should have access to the following specifications:

  • A recent model computer and
  • At minimum a reliable broadband internet connection, although cable, DSL or fiber is preferred.
