Hybrid learning programs have become more and more popular, but they’re not always easy to set up. Here’s what you need to know about hybrid learning programs and how they can help your students succeed.
What is hybrid learning?
Hybrid learning is a combination of online and face-to-face learning, which can be used for students from kindergarten through college. Because it combines both approaches, hybrid learning allows students to work at their own pace and gives them the flexibility to learn in different ways. It also provides teachers or trainers with more opportunities to interact with students in real time, allowing them to guide each learner toward success. Hybrid programs can be used for any subject or content area–from art history to zoology–and are particularly effective when combined with other types of online training (like MOOCs).
The benefits of a hybrid program
Hybrid programs can be more flexible than online programs. Hybrid students are able to learn in a variety of settings, including the classroom and at home. This flexibility allows them to customize their learning experience to meet their needs and schedules. Hybrid programs can also be more efficient than online programs because they require less time away from work or school for travel purposes since students do not have to commute as often as those who participate in fully-online courses.*
