What is a Hybrid course?
Courses that are considered “hybrid” or “blended” combine both face-to-face classroom lecture with an online learning component. In hybrid classes, a portion of learning activities takes place online outside of class time, and face-to-face lecture time can be reduced. This type of course supports flexibility of learning as it utilizes a traditional, as well as a digital-age structure.
What should I expect from a Hybrid course?
Your instructor will set specific days for the face-to-face interaction. You may be required to participate in discussions, quizzes, and general in-class assignments using WiFi capable devices during this time. Your instructor will also provide details regarding online classwork. The online learning component may consist of discussion boards, assignments, exams, and/or projects that are to be completed entirely online by specific deadlines.
What are the technology requirements for an Interactive Distance Learning Course?
Although specific equipment is not required, it is strongly encouraged to own or have access to a recent computer system. Due to the nature of using technology to complete the coursework outside of the face-to-face meeting times, having Internet access from a personal computer can be helpful.
