Hybrid and Online Learning

The Drexel First-Year Writing Program (FWP) has been offering online and hybrid versions of its English 101, 102, and 103 courses since 2004.

Online writing courses take place mostly on the web, typically using the course management software Blackboard Vista (BbVista). Some courses require that you meet with your instructor face-to-face once or twice for a conference during the term.

Hybrid courses meet face-to-face once per week, and the bulk of the coursework (class discussions, informal writing, access to readings, peer review, turning in assignments) is done online, typically using Drexel Learn. Information about Drexel Learn can be found on the Information Resources and Technology website.

Online and hybrid courses offer both advantages and challenges. The material below will provide you with more information.
