What is a HyFlex course?


HyFlex Design Principles

  • Learner Choice: Provide meaningful alternative participation modes and enable students to choose between participation modes weekly (or topically).

  • Equivalency: Provide equivalent learning activities in all participation modes.

  • Reusability: Utilizeartifacts from learning activities in each participation mode as “learning objects’ for all students.

  • Accessibility: Equip students with technology skills and access to all participation modes.

Note: these are universal principles - generally applicable to all HyFlex courses.

It’s a process …


Questions …

How are HyFlex courses different than what we are already doing?

Is this additional work for the instructor?

… for the students?

Can students develop media skills in alternative venues?

Will students take advantage of the flexibility? Distance options?


Program Issues

  • Instructor Performance (interest, skills)

  • Student Performance

  • Program Content

  • Institutional Support (College, University)

    • Synchronous Online Technologies

commentary


Commentary

  • Largest amount of “flex” in larger F2F sections (N=15; 15 week course)

  • Online students choose online option for good reasons that may prevent F2F participation

  • Some students do not flex at all; but all report positive aspect of choice
