Cooperative education is an educational strategy that integrates work experience with classroom and lab experience. Students work full-time for a semester for an employer of their choice. During that time students reflect on their work experience integrating what they learned in the classroom with what is learned in the workplace. Additionally, students receive feedback from their supervisor on their performance in the workplace.

What is a hybrid course? What is an online course?
As institutions of higher education begin to broaden their existing programs and introduce new ones, online learning provides opportunities to reach a wider audience of potential students. More importantly, it offers faculty the opportunity to engage and interact with students in an entirely new way. This table from the Sloan-C document "Learning on Demand: Online Education in the United States, 2009" identifies different delivery formats.
