Narrowing the Distance: Implementing a Hybrid Learning Model for Information Security Education
Tabor, Sharon W.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v8 n1 p47-57 2007
Distance education has become an expectation with students who have grown up with technology as well as nontraditional and working students. Most universities now offer a wide range of online courses and degree programs to meet these needs. Online delivery of technology courses, however, has been problematic when the course includes very complex topics or hands-on components. An alternative presentation mode is the hybrid, or blended, model where class meetings alternate between physical face-to-face sessions and online activity component. This article discusses faculty preparation, as well as the benefits, challenges, and outcomes of using the hybrid model for a security course over a 2-year period. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
