Assessing Needs for Support – Students

We’re starting a project within the ITEC program at SFSU to assess the needs of students who enroll in HyFlex courses. We plan to look at multiple levels of students enrolled in a variety of class levels and formats. For example, we’ll assess the needs of graduate students enrolled in seminar (discussion) classes, technology lab classes, and project-based practicum classes. We’ll also assess the needs of undergraduate students enrolled in lecture classes, where lecture capture technologies are primarily used to provide materials for online students.

HyFlex allows students to work when and where they want to - including in a real classroom!

If you’d like to read more about several models that describe what students need for success in an online course (part of the HyFlex experience…), see: http://www.onlinestudentsupport.org/Monograph/readiness.php

We plan to have preliminary results available in late August 2012, so check back then!
