Advanced ESL Hybrid Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a hybrid course?

    A hybrid course is a course that meets 50% in the classroom and 50% online using a Brightspace classroom. Brightspace is CCC’s learning management system.

  • How often per week do hybrid classes meet?

    That depends on your course length:

    • 8-week courses meet twice a week for 3 hours each meeting with 6 hours of online work outside of class
    • 12-week courses meet once a week for 4 hours each meeting and 4 hours of work outside of class
    • 16-week courses meet once a week for 3 hours each meeting and 3 hours of work outside of class
  • Do I need to be online at a specific time?

    You do not have to be online at any specific time. Instead, you do the online work at any time in a given week when it is convenient for you.
