Delivery Methods represent the various course offering formats utilized at your institution.  Delivery Methods may vary in delivery medium and/or weekly contact hours.  Examples include "Standard", "Accelerated", "Online", etc.


Delivery Methods are primarily used for course configuration to determine how course sections are created during the sectioning process.  A course is configured to have a default, as well as other possible delivery methods.  Each course delivery method combination may be independently configured to define its meeting types and sectioning behavior.  Additionally, course exam preferences may be configured per course delivery method.


NoteNOTE:  By default, all courses are assumed to have a "Standard" delivery method.
