??

The hybrid environment, also known as??blended??or??mixed-mode, allows educators to mix-and-match teaching strategies, learning objects, and instructional tools for maximum impact. When carefully designed, the hybrid environment also provides the opportunity for educators to capitalize on the benefits of both face-to-face and online instruction to meet the needs of all stakeholders involved.
