Laura Hotham, a psychology professor at Niagara College, teaches the abnormal psychology course that Ms. Pillwein is taking at the Welland, Ont., campus. Ms. Hotham finds that the combination of two hours of classroom lecture and then one hour of online activity for the week is an effective way of teaching the material, particularly because it gives students time to take away what has been said and digest it. After two years of teaching the course with the online component and one year before that of teaching without it, she says the student grades are higher than when she taught only in the classroom.
