CGS 1000 at HCC is taught several different ways, here is a brief explanation. Hybrid classes, Optional Hybrid Classes and Online Classes all have online elements, there are some distinct differences between the three types of courses.
Online Course/Classes - Distance Learning classes take place online. Every class meeting, every homework assignment, every major course assignment, and almost all contact with the instructor take place online. Classes do not meet in person on campus at a designated place and time, but instead through a course website in Canvas.
Hybrid Course/Classes - Students still have in-person contact with their instructor for at least a portion of the class time. Hybrid courses coordinate class meetings splitting between both face to face and online portions, however the program chooses to divide that time.
Optional Hybrid Course/Classes - Students have the option for in-person contact with their instructor during on campus, open lab meetings. Optional Hybrid courses list optional times when students can come on campus for labs or help.
