A blended learning course combines on-site classroom instruction with an online learning component that is conducted via Blackboard and other out-of-class activities.
Blended learning classes meet once each week for two hours in the classroom and for two hours each week online at a time of the student’s choosing. The four hours do not include the time it will take to complete class assignments listed on the course syllabus
Students must complete course assignments by the specified due dates.
Blended learning is for students who wish to combine face-to-face instruction with online activities such as collaborative discussions, group projects, or other assignments.
Successful blended learning students are:interested in active and participatory learning both in the classroom and online;
comfortable with using the computer, the Internet, and Blackboard;
organized and good at time management;
strong writers, critical thinkers, and communicators;
willing to dedicate quality time to the online component of the class.
Blended learning students should expect to spend between 2-3 additional hours online throughout the week. This time does not include regular coursework such as reading, writing, and studying.
Blended learning courses provide more flexibility in when you attend class than traditional on-site courses, but they require just as much dedication and focus on the learning process. The reward for the student comes from taking a more active, participatory role in the learning process. By engaging and collaborating with other students and the instructor on a regular basis in the classroom and online discussions, the blended learning student becomes an active contributor to the learning process.
The skills you build and use in blended learning – organization, time management, and problem solving – are life skills that will benefit you in your study at LaGuardia Community College, in your work, and in your personal life.
