Consider hybrid & hyflex teaching options

iconIn this section, you'll find information on teaching hybrid or HyFlex classes at JMU. 

Are some of your students unable to attend class?

Some students may need to quarantine or isolate this semester. You have a number of options to accommodate student attendance needs, just as you would in a typical semester. 

Scenario 1: Student is unable to attend but able to engage in real time:

You can implement a hyflex modelThis option may be the least disruptive for students and may result in the smallest number of pedagogical changes for you. You can use a web-conferencing tool and in-class technology to allow students to attend your class online/synchronously. To learn more about how to use these tools, consult our Classroom Technology Tutorials or request a consultation with a member of the Libraries team.

Scenario 2: Student is unable to attend and unable to engage in real time

You can record and share your in-class lecture for later viewing. If you would rather not record your lectures, or the course does not lend itself to this format, consider providing alternative ways for students to engage in coursework asynchronously.

To learn more about how to record and share lectures or design alternative options, consider requesting a consultation with a member of the Libraries team.
