What is the Difference Between Online and Hybrid?
Online classes allow students to obtain college credit without the need for traveling to one of Lone Star College System's campuses. The content and transferability of the courses are the same as traditional on-campus courses. In a manner similar to courses offered on-campus, instructors in online courses use a variety of learning activities via distance such as discussion, class projects, exams, presentations, and written papers.
Hybrid classes are those where face-to-face instructional delivery is regularly replaced by alternative delivery methods such as the Internet.
