What is it?
The goal of a hybrid class is to blend the best features of in-person instruction with technology-enriched online experiences to create an educational atmosphere that promotes active participatory learning. By supplementing traditional in-person methods with web-based activities and resources, the course is made more accessible and interactive and cultivates increased student interest and self-exploration. 
Why do it?
Studies conducted at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee found that students benefited from the hybrid format by: learning more, writing better papers, performing better on tests, discussing course materials more meaningfully, and completing higher quality class projects.
Data from the University of Central Florida also indicate that students participating in hybrid courses received better grades than those taking traditional onsite classes or online courses and that student success rates in hybrid courses on the Central Florida campus are “equivalent or slightly superior” to face to face courses. Also notable is that the hybrid courses have lower dropout rates than courses that are taught solely online 
How is it done?
1.First, think about the types of activities that take place in a classroom environment. How can or can’t those be duplicated or enhanced in an online environment? (see Delivery Options for Online/Hybrid Activities handout).
2.Analyze your current face-to-face class outline. Are there any components of lessons that could be delivered online?
3.What are those components and how would they be delivered in an online environment?
4.Dissect a particular lesson by determining what activities can be taught in an online format and what activities are best suited in the face-to-face environment. (see Hybrid Lesson Design Tool handout).
