materials and assignments for the course will be posted
on the course Blackboard site, a password secure web

Benefits of a Hybrid Course
There are several advantages to a hybrid course:
Gradual introduction to online
For those students who want a
gradual introduction to online education and courses,
the hybrid format provides an introduction to the
technology of online courses with a weekly "live"
presence of your instructor.
Online Those students who wish can
go completely online with the course, as the course
material will be exactly the same as the pure online
- Those who select this option must inform
Professor Arguello that they will no longer be
attending the weekly class meeting.
