Hybrid Education

With the advent of online classes, there will be new opportunities for hybrid education. No longer just a choice of traditional classroom versus online classes, colleges will be able to offer hybrid courses.

If a professor posts lectures as videos, students can view them when they want, pause to review important points, and discuss the lecture with other students either in person or electronically. Then the student can came to the university for seminars where in-depth discussion and analysis takes place on the content of the lectures. This has the benefit of allowing more students to attend less expensively, and focus the university resources on dialogue and teacher/student interaction. This could be a win-win.
