Definitions
Virtual Classroom: An online, collaborative meeting experience that allows professors and students in different locations to interact in real time for instruction. The environment offers desktop sharing, application sharing, Web conferencing, video conferencing, live streaming, and chat capabilities. Professors and students can access content through an online portal from their personal computers, tablets, or even by mobile phone. Live chat with tutors can happen with a video calling option. Mobile video and audio conferencing solutions can be leveraged for interactive participation by multiple end users across the same platform.
Asynchronous Learning: A lecture occurs at a different time than student viewing.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): Students consume classroom content on a device of their choice (e.g., smartphone, tablet, or laptop) at any time or place. It is required for mLearning (learning on a mobile device). Device use can be in or outside of the classroom.

Blended or Hybrid Classroom: An online component complements traditional, face-to-face classroom instruction, allowing a student to exercise some control over the time and location of learning.
