San Diego State and other California State campuses are offering students courses that blend in-person and online learning, hoping they’ll get the best of both worlds.
SAN DIEGO — Increasing the number of online classes is just one way California’s public universities have been trying to serve students despite years of budget cuts. That has spawned a debate about whether students can get the same quality of education online. At San Diego State University a middle-of-the-road approach is gaining ground. At 8 a.m. on a recent Thursday Helen Noble’s Elementary Business Statistics students were having one of their final summer session classes. But the students only spend half their time with Noble in that classroom. The rest of the time they log in online for lectures.Share on Facebook
