One of the huge challenges with hybrid and online learning is sorting out what we mean by all of the different terms. Many people use terms like “blended,” “web-enhanced,” “hybrid,” and “web-assisted” to describe courses that are not technology-free, but also not 100% virtual. Of course, the range between those terms is wide and at times problematic.
UCLA’s Online Instruction Resource Website offers a nice starting point for wading through the terminology. They define web-facilitated, hybrid/blended, online, flipped classroom, MOOCs, asynchronous, and synchronous. They also provide links to several journals relevant that focus on online learning.
