Learning Mode

From CSUMB Data Glossary
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Learning Mode identifies the instructor / enrolled students environment as either live instructor with physically present students ("Face-to-Face" mode) or prescheduled (days/hours) remote broadcast of instruction ("Synchronous" mode) or web delivered instruction available to students 24/7 ("Asynchronous" mode). Hybrid learning modes combine some aspects of "Face-to-Face", "Synchronous", or "Asynchronous" modes.

Table of Learning Mode Values, Descriptions, and Common Groupings

APDB Learning Mode Code APDB Learning Mode Description (in CSUMB Data Warehouse) APDB Learning Mode Definition (from APDB Learning Mode Documentation)[1] Online, Hybrid, Face-to-face Grouping Distance & Non-Distance Learning (IPEDS) Groupings
01 Asynchronous no meetings AB386 Asynchronous 24/7 web delivered instruction with no intermittent face to face meetings with students thru out the term Purely Online Distance
02 Synchronous no meetings AB386 Synchronous web or airwaves delivered instruction at pre-scheduled (weekly or biweekly) days/times

with no face to face meetings with students thru out the term

Purely Online Distance
03 Asynchronous mtgs allowed FDE Asynchronous instructional delivery course section which includes very limited specific date face to face or

synchronous meetings for orientation and/or mid-term and/or final exam and/or rare single date class meetings

for other purposes.

Face-to-face + Online Hybrid Distance
04 Synchronous mtgs allowed FDE Synchronous web or airwaves delivered instruction at pre-scheduled (weekly or biweekly) days/times with

INTERMITTENT (days/times vary and less frequent then biweekly) face to face meetings for one or more of

following:  orientation, mid-term and/or final exams, and overview of next phase of course content.

Face-to-face + Online Hybrid Distance
05 Asynchronous with mtgs, Hybrid Hybrid combination of face to face and asynchronous 24/7 web delivered instruction.  Face to face component must

meet weekly or biweekly at specific day/times.

Face-to-face + Online Hybrid Non-Distance
06 Synchronous with mtgs, Hybrid Hybrid combination of face to face and synchronous instruction (see 02 definition above).  Both the face to face

and synchronous (pre-scheduled broadcast) component must meet weekly or biweekly at specific day/times. 

Face-to-face + Online Hybrid Non-Distance
09 Face-to-face 100% face to face (live instructor + physically assembled students) instruction thru out the term Purely Face-to-Face Non-Distance
10 A/S Hybrid no meetings AB386 Hybrid combination of synchronous and asynchronous instruction (see 01 and 02 definitions above) with no intermittent face to face meetings with students  thru out the term Purely Online Distance
11 A/S Hybrid mtgs allowed FDE Hybrid combination of synchronous and asynchronous  instruction (see 03 and 04 definitions above) with INTERMITTENT (days/times vary and less frequent then biweekly)  face to face meetings for one or more of following: orientation, mid-term and/or final exams, and overview of next phase of course content.  Face-to-face + Online Hybrid Distance

NOTE:  Effective CY 2021-22 some CSU campuses will be reporting individual course offerings which contain 3 distinct instructional modes (face to face,  synchronous and asynchronous).  Such offerings will be reported via a combination of existing learning modes 01 thru 04, 06 and 09.  A total of 3 separate categories for such courses has been identified and is documented (see page 15 in the APDB Learning Mode Examples Documentation)[1].

Common Groupings

Online, Hybrid, Face-to-face Groupings

Pure Online Classes: APDB Learning Mode Codes 01, 02, 10

Face-to-face / Online Hybrids Classes: APDB Learning Mode Codes 03, 04, 05, 06, 11

Pure Face-to-face Classes: APDB Learning Mode 09

Distance & Non-Distance Learning (IPEDS)

Distance: APDB Learning Mode Codes 01, 02, 03, 04, 10, 11

Non-Distance: APDB Learning Modes: 05, 06, 09

Business Rule

Facility ID and Space ID are defaulted to blank in the APDB Section file when Learning Mode is "03" (Asynchronous).

Examples

Example values for Learning Mode include:

  • Asynchronous
  • Asynchronous mtgs allowed FDE
  • Asynchronous no meetings AB386
  • Asynchronous with mtgs, Hybrid
  • Face-to-face

See the APDB Data Element Dictionary for all codes and corresponding descriptions.[1]

Definition Source

"A two character code that, for a given course offering, identifies the instructor/enrolled students environment  as either live instructor with physically present students  (“Face-to-Face” mode)  or prescheduled (days/hours) remote broadcast of instruction (”Synchronous” mode) or web delivered instruction available to students 24/7  (“Asynchronous” mode). Campus reported Learning Mode and Space Type codes allow for a quantitative assessment of the extent to which the use of available remote instructional technology reduces the need for traditional lecture and laboratory SFDB space."[1]
