Hybrid & Online Courses
The term "hybrid course" (a term that is used interchangeably with the term "blended learning") describes a course design that combines traditional, face-to-face class time with online and out-of-class course work. For instance, a course that traditionally meets five times a week face-to-face may meet twice a week face-to-face, with the rest of the course activities online. There is a growing body of research which shows that hybrid learning can enhance student learning beyond traditional face-to-face courses and in wholly online courses. One of the studies performed by the U.S. Department of Education showed a significant improvement of learning in hybrid courses as compared to only face-to-face or only online. This course format not only provides greater flexibility in learning for faculty and students, but can also increase rigor and engagement.
