Hybrid Learning

Definition of Hybrid Learning

The term "hybrid course" (a term we use interchangeably with the term "blended learning") names a model of course design that combines traditional, face-to-face class time with online and out-of-class course work. For UW Bothell specifically, we define hybrid courses as those where 25% to 50% of the traditional face-to-face class time is replaced with online or out-of-class work. (See UCF Blended Learning Toolkit for an alternative definition of "blended learning.")

The replacement of 25% to 50% of in-class time with online and out-of-class work differentiates "hybrid courses" from "Web-enhanced courses," which continue to meet during the normal class hours and use the online component to supplement face-to-face time. (Allen et al. 2007)
