Selecting a Delivery Mode
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.
