What is the difference between “Hybrid” and “Online”?
In an online course, all of the course assignments and activities are completed online, while hybrid courses combine the best features of online and face-to-face learning environments.
Hybrid or “Blended” learning includes some required on-campus class meetings (at the discretion of the instructor), with most course content online. Hybrid courses include face-to-face sessions that retain the social dynamic and community built in the classroom, but decrease scheduled class and commuting time for students.
Are eLearning classes right for you?
Only you can determine if eLearning classes will be a good fit for you. In order to be successful in eLearning classes, you will need access to a computer and high-speed Internet, time managment skills that allow you to manage the rigors of college, self-determination to be active in the online classroom, good organizational skills and a minimum level of technology literacy skills. BRCC provides an eSkills orientation test that you can use to gauge whether an eLearning course (online or hybrid) might be right for you.
Before you register for any course, make sure it is appropriate for the degree or certificate you are pursuing. If you are not sure, check with an academic advisor.
