Spectrum of Technology and Classes

A hybrid course can be anywhere from 30% to 60% of instructional time online.

As with an on-ground course, every faculty member teaches their hybrid/online course differently. Important questions to have answers for are:

  • How often and how long are online course lectures?
  • How often and how are graded assignments are issued?
  • How often does an instructor expect you to access online content? Weekly? Bi-weekly? Every day?
  • Will you require any additional textbooks, software, or hardware?
The syllabus to an online/hybrid course can answer many of these questions and is just as critical as an on-ground course. It is highly recommended that you save the syllabus to your computer and check it often.
