What Does HyFlex Mean?

The HyFlex model is a relatively new, innovative approach to instructional delivery that fuses online instruction with face-to-face instruction. The HyFlex model will allow for in-person lecture courses to take place on campus, while maintaining appropriate physical distancing and protective practices. Blue Ridge Community College Faculty are attending training on the techniques and technologies required for successful implementation of the HyFlex model, which will be used by many courses in the fall semester.

What Does that Mean for Students?

Some students will attend class in person with the instructor in the classroom, and others will view the lecture and participate in activities from home. Instructors can rotate student attendance, ensuring that all students who desire have the opportunity to to attend class in person. Students will also have the option to exclusively attend remotely, if they prefer. As necessary, the HyFlex class can flip to completely online, to meet the needs of an ever-evolving environment.

How will I know if I am registering for a Hyflex Class?

Faculty will communicate with students before the start date to clarify how and when to attend in-person, remotely, etc. Students should be vigilant in checking their Blue Ridge email for specific information as it applies to them.

Blue Ridge remains committed to the success of its students and continues to work diligently to implement cutting-edge approaches to ensure the College provides a safe and effective learning environment.
