HYBRID LEARNING AND ITS FUTURE APPLICATIONS

By now mixed or hybrid learning can be considered a reality. This type of educational methodology is no longer a hope for the future, or an influential but short-term trend. In fact, one in ten students is enrolled exclusively in online courses; and in the US, it is estimated that 7.1 million students participate in this type of education.

Online courses are on the rise in the university context and beyond: to substitute or complement traditional, in-person classes. Nevertheless, some recent events have prompted distrust in this type of educational model, which some groups consider merely a passing trend. This is largely due to its rapid grown and the widespread failure of large-scale open online courses which had created high expectations that they were ultimately unable to fulfill.

Indeed, hybrid learning offers an interesting and wide range of possibilities: flexible time tables, easy access, integration of multimedia resources, and more. This study presents a hybrid teaching model, analyzes its advantages and drawbacks, and describes a real life experience. And lastly, options for future lines of research are recommended that follow different hybrid learning methodologies such as the Hyflex or Flipped Classroom models.
