On-Campus/Online Hybrid Courses
On-Campus/Online Hybrid courses join the best features of in-class teaching with the advantages of online learning to promote active independent learning and to reduce class seat-time. By combining in-person and online instruction to deliver material, instructors can use those techniques best suited for teaching engaging content. Hybrid courses allow instructors to use computer-based technologies selectively–to present case studies, tutorials, self-testing exercises, simulations, or other online work in place of some lecture or lab material–but without relinquishing all classroom interaction.
Instructors and departments handle hybrid course schedules differently. The portion of the class taught face-to-face or online varies. Always contact your instructor or department before class starts if you have questions about the class requirements and/or schedule.
Technology requirements for hybrid courses are the same as for the online courses.
