WHAT IS BLENDED OR HYBRID LEARNING?
Blended learning (also known as hybrid learning) is a method of teaching that combines online instruction with traditional instructor-led classroom activities. In other words, some class sessions are offered with real time online instruction, while other sessions happen in an instructor-led face-to-face classroom environment.
Online and face-to-face (blended) learning is complementary, and creates a truly integrated learning environment.
- Hyflex- some students attend classes face-to-face and some students join online at the very same time (two different environments but the same learning experience).
- Synchronous Online - students are required to log in and participate in class at a specific time each week.
- Asynchronous Online - allows students to view instructional materials each week at any time they choose.
