Online Learning: HyFlex Instructional Model

By Robert Griffiths, Digital Union

Instructional models exist for instructors to understand how to match activities with course objectives and to help students get the most out of courses. With technology, there are many media to deliver content in ways to maximize the potential of each model. For instance, distance (or totally online courses) and blended (or Hybrid) approaches have made great gains as more instructors understand best practices. A relatively new approach, named HyFlex, has emerged to provide opportunities to meet learning outcomes in a more flexible approach, for instructors and students. The term HyFlex (Hybrid-Flexible) refers to courses that “provide participation options for students, allowing them to choose between online and classroom-based learning on a weekly (or regular) basis. Essentially, students create their own blend of participation that fits their needs and desires” (Beatty, 2012).
