Hybrid Courses

A hybrid course is an ideal combination of classroom interaction with the use of online resources. Because so many of the course interactions are conducted online, the amount of class meeting time is up to half that of the traditional campus version of the course. Students may use computers in the campus computer labs or use their home computers with Internet access to complete online course activities.

The RTC Library has computers available for student use. Additional help is available at RTC Student Resource Center.
