Blended courses are often considered to be the best of both worlds: face-to-face and virtual. They provide some flexibility while allowing you to meet in a classroom with your instructor and other students. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board defines blended/hybrid courses as "A course in which a majority (more than 50 percent but less than 85 percent), of the planned instruction occurs when the students and instructor(s) are not in the same place." The percentage of face-to-face versus online varies from one CTC course or subject area to another. CTC typically schedules these classes as OBL (online blended) or sometimes HYL (hybrid lecture).
You must attend certain scheduled activities, such as lectures, clinicals, or labs, on campus or at a particular location, while completing other activities, such as submitting homework or participating in discussion boards, online in Blackboard at http://ctc.blackboard.com. All CTC students have access to services as described at the CTC website at http://www.ctcd.edu. Online blended students can enroll in any of these free resources inside Blackboard:
