Selecting a Delivery Mode

Selecting a delivery mode for your course/program can be a complex part of the early planning stages. There are many things for faculty and instructors, administrators, and stakeholders to consider, and lots of questions about how best to meet the learning needs of your students. The resources on this page will help facilitate that process.

The Delivery Mode Screening Tool

This questionnaire is designed to help you decide the delivery mode for a program or course. It should take about 10 minutes to complete.

You will be asked a series of questions relating to student demographics, teaching approaches, educator resources, and physical infrastructure. When you are finished, you will be provided with a ranked list of delivery modes that fit with your answers, and personalized feedback related to the choices you have made. If you wish to, you can save your results as a PDF document.

Note that this tool is not meant to be prescriptive or to give you definitive answers for your course/program! Rather, it is meant to highlight points of consideration and guide further discussion amongst stakeholders and decision-makers.
