DEFINITION:                                                                     
   A indicator of the type of technology that is being used by the              
   instructor instead of face-to-face contact.                                  
   Up to three occurrences will be available for coding.  The first             
   should be the primary method of delivery.  If technology is only             
   a supplemental tool for this course, the first occurrence of this            
   element should be coded "N - none" and subsequent occurrences                
   should be used to indicate the technology.

CODING INSTRUCTIONS:                                                            
   Code the technology associated with the delivery of this                     
   course section.  If technology is only a supplemental tool                   
   for this course the first occurrence of this field should                    
   be coded "N - none" and the second and third values should be                
   used to indicate the type of technology.                                     
   If the course has both a technology and a face-to-face component,            
   the delivery method associated with the majority of the                      
   instructional time should be coded in the first occurrence of                
   this field.
