The growth of online courses in American colleges and universities is clear and compelling. Online courses offer distinct advantages and, often, challenges to both instructors and students. Increasingly, faculty are asked to develop online courses, of which variation, such as “hybrid” or “blended” courses are a subset. Hybrid online courses retain face to face class experiences while offering online experiences as well. Faculty with experience teaching hybrid courses have suggested that they can be superior to traditional courses (Young, 2002). While various forms of hybrid courses have been developed, this presentation focuses on the blend of face to face course meetings with online instruction.
