Hybrid Course Format

Full Time Flexibility

Hybrid online courses

What exactly does 'hybrid' mean?

Hybrid courses blend both traditional classroom instruction with the flexibility of online learning.

So typically, half of your course is on campus and the other half is online.

Hybrid Courses. Full Learning

Rather than having you sit in a lecture hall taking notes, instructors can teach through more “active-learning” assignments...

  • Case studies
  • Self-tests
  • Tutorials
  • Online group projects

Benefits of Hybrid Instruction

Some of the advantages of this growing format include...

  • A focus on your writing and computer skills.
  • Cultivating a sense of self-resourcefulness, including - self-directed learning, time management and problem-solving.
  • Improved class participation due to the expanded response time, as well as the security of 'speaking' from your laptop.
  • The standard benefits of online learning, like flexibility, controlling your pace, parking costs, commuting time, etc.
