Hybrid Learning FAQs

Hybrid learning balances online and in-person courses to provide a way for students to go to class, while maintaining the flexibility needed for their lifestyle. Furthermore, it allows students to gain from the face-to-face interaction of a campus course without missing out on the convenience of an online course.

Blended learning combines in-class courses with a portion of online courses to create a convenient way for students to earn their degree. Unlike hybrid courses, the online portion of the course is supplemental to the in-person courses.

Hybrid and blended learning are similar in essence, but there are distinctions between these two learning formats. Both hybrid and blended learning are designed to create a learning format that benefits working professionals and those with a demanding schedule. However, while hybrid learning combines face-to-face lessons with online courses, blended learning provides online elements to support in-class learning.
