A hybrid-blended class refers to a model of course design that combines traditional classroom learning with online or out-of-class coursework activities. At MSMC, a hybrid course is defined as a course where a portion, but not all, of traditional face-to-face class time is replaced with online or out-of-class coursework that is planned and scheduled on a regularly occurring basis. Hybrid-blended class refers to the same type of course offerings.
