Reply To: It’s one thing to design a HyFlex course, but it’s another thing to implement.

Irene, thanks for your comments. You are right, the student experience is impacted by their familiarity with the way a HyFlex course operates, the technologies being unused, and the decisions students have the opportunity to make. If they aren’t sure what each option provides and requires of them, they may be anxious and/or make poor learning participation choices that don’t work well for them.

And during the course, the teacher has to make sure that activities, especially ones as complex as group assignments, are well-understood by students so they can make participation choices (if applicable) and know how to participate effectively.
