Regular & Substantive Interaction (RSI)

Regular & Substantive Interaction refers to the federally mandated guidelines for instructor-led interaction with students in online and hybrid courses. 

Let's break down the major components which are the minimum expectations of all online and hybrid courses.

  • Regular means scheduled and predictable communication with students consistently.
  • Substantive means engaging students in meaningful discussion about course content.
  • Interaction means instructor-initiated contact with an opportunity for students to respond.
