What Is a Hybird Course?

A hybrid course requires students to attend class both on campus and online. Besides the traditional classroom work, hybrid courses also use Internet technology. Course instruction, work, and materials will be delivered both in class and online. Prof. Borla's students attend class two hours each week instead of four; the rest of the time is spent working independently online.

The online delivery mode requires strong reading and time-management skills from independent learners.For those up to the challenge, the hybrid environment offers a unique and rewarding way to study composition.
