Frequently Asked Questions

  1. WHAT IS A HYBRID COURSE?
    A hybrid class blends in-class teaching and online learning. Depending on the subject, the amount of web-based instruction ranges from 30-70% with the remainder taking place in a traditional classroom setting.

  2. WHAT TECHNOLOGY WILL I NEED?
    A reliable Internet connection is necessary. If you do not have your own computer, you can use Campus computers.

  3. WHAT SOFTWARE IS USED?
    Most Hybrid Courses use “Blackboard”—you can log on to get your Blackboard account at http://tac.nvcc.edu/blackboard/.

  4. HOW MUCH TIME WILL A HYBRID COURSE TAKE?
    Hybrid courses are NOT “condensed” courses. The online portion of a hybrid course requires the same number of “contact hours” as the face-to-face class time that it is replacing.

  5. HOW CAN I SUCCEED IN A HYBRID COURSE?

 
  • You should be comfortable using computers and the Internet

  • You need excellent time management skills and self-motivation

  • You need to keep up with class reading

  • You need to stay current with the class calendar

  • You need to read assignments and directions carefully
