What is a hybrid course?

“Hybrid” courses combine face-to-face classroom instruction with online learning. A portion of a hybrid course is scheduled on-campus and the rest if completed online. CWI hybrid courses offer students the best of both worlds with regularly scheduled interaction with faculty, combined with the flexibility of computer-based learning process.

Benefits of a hybrid course:

  • A combination of the best features of face-to-face instruction and the best features of online education.
  • Regularly scheduled faculty/student interactions.

  • Flexibility of completing assignments through Blackboard (a computer-based learning platform).
  • Individualized assistance for students who need additional help.
