HyFlex: Learning on Your Time

Everyone's schedule is different. If you have competing priorities, making it to campus for every class may not be realistic. HyFlex takes advantage of emerging technologies, allowing you to choose—day by day—how, when, and where you "attend" class.

HyFlex is an instructional model which broadcasts and records classroom lectures as they take place, making accessibility and flexibility a reality for all students. Through this model, you can decide how and when you access a lecture.

For example, one week, you may attend class in-person on campus, and another, you can watch a live stream from the convenience of your home or a coffee shop. Then, on the following week, you might decide to catch the recorded version of the lecture on a quiet weekend morning. Also, since all lecture video recordings are available online, you can revisit lessons at any time to be prepared for all exams, papers, and projects.

Through FLCC’s HyFlex learning model, the choice of how, when, and where you access your course is yours.
