  • 7. STEPS TO TAKE WITH HYBRID CLASSES
    • My problem with hybrid classes:

    • Same technique as with OL:
    • Mandating interaction with Discussion Forum, based on specific topics

    • Textbooks : the problem
    • Expensive
    • Information can become outdated quickly
    • Students may not get them in time
  • 9. EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES – A SHIFT
    • Textbooks : the fix:
    • Open Education Resources
    • MIT Open Courseware
    • Connexions – Rice University:
    • Merlot
    • Open Learning Initiative (Carnegie Mellon)
