hybrid
A Hybrid class is one where 'seat time' is replaced with outside of class work.

What this really means is that instead of a class meeting twice a week for 75 minutes each time, the class may meet only one time a week and the student is given online coursework to complete to replace the other class meeting. Or a class that would meet three times a week for 60 minutes, may meet one time per week and the other two hours are again replaced by online course assignments. Whatever the arrangements are, there are regular class meetings that are less than the 'standard' 3 hours per week and the rest of the course time is replaced by work a student needs to complete outside of class.

Hybrid classes can be more work than a 'regular' class since students are responsible for more independent work than they might be in a 'regular' class.
