Engagement and Interaction

“The hybrid approach invariably increases student engagement and interactivity in a course. One of the primary fears expressed by faculty about hybrid courses is that they will lose contact with their students. Just the opposite occurs. Hybrid courses encourage instructors to develop new ways to engage their students online and foster online communities. This greater online interaction will emerge in the classroom as well.”
