  18. 18. WHY?
  19. 19. In Florida, students arerequired to take at least one online course before high- school graduation. Students bring familiarity with online and in-class learning, but have neverexperienced a hybrid course. ≤1 online class before graduation
  20. 20. How Students Choose• Institutions say: • Students say: 1. Independence 1. Days of the week 2. Learning style 2. Teacher 3. Reading ability 3. Strength in subject
  21. 21. Student Advice• Flexibility• Responsibility• Personal
  22. 22. Conclusions
  23. 23. Institutions• Students: What is blended?• Instructors: Blended ≠ in-person• Use new methods/approaches
  24. 24. Teachers• Show the tech• Make predictable schedule • Use routine • Include flexibility• Provide deadlines
  25. 25. Students• Delivery mode > days/times• Choose based on strengths
