Most online courses are delivered completely online, with minimal on-campus requirements. On-campus or in-person events that may be required of online students include orientations, exams, final presentations, or, in some cases, fieldwork placements.

The technical definition of an online course or program is one that is completed using 30-percent or less live classroom instruction. This includes fully online courses where all of the instruction is delivered online, and blended courses where the course is split between live classroom instruction and online classroom sessions.
