Parent Page(s): Online Course Delivery Options
Optimize the way you deliver your courses.
UBC has adopted an expanded range of course delivery modes that provide more options for flexible course design and delivery. These delivery modes are available to be included as activity types in the Student Information Services Centre and provide a range of options for how instructors might configure their classes across in-person and online spaces.
The following information provides an overview of the different modes of delivery now available along with some considerations for how the learning technologies available might be relevant in each mode.
General UBC Resources
