Remote vs. Online Instruction

What are the differences between teaching remotely and teaching fully online courses?

Remote Instruction
Remote instruction is most often a solution to developing and facilitating a course curriculum in times of face-to-face class interruptions (e.g. a scheduled absence, a snow day or an emergency). Instruction is designed in a responsive manner by instructors, and often delivered through an instructor’s preferred technology to best meet course outcomes under the circumstances of the interruption.

Online Instruction
Online instruction is the facilitation that occurs in a course that has been developed with the intention for fully online delivery. Instructional experiences are designed in a planned manner, over weeks and months, most often with support of an instructional designer and a media services team. Read more.
