Digital Education: Online and Blended Learning
What is Online and Blended Learning?
Online learning at AUC is defined as a model of instruction that has no required face-to-face components and no requirements for on-campus activities.

Critical interactions between student and content, student and peers, and student and instructor are accomplished wholly online.
