In an effort to determine the effectiveness of hybrid courses at UMBC, DoIT and the Office of Summer, Winter and Special Programs (OSWSP) have begun to survey students about their experiences in special session hybrid courses. Initially, only summer and winter courses that are taught by faculty that have participated in the Alternate Delivery Program (ADP) have been surveyed. Eventually, we are hoping to survey all special session courses.
This first survey showed that 69% of the students who responded had never taken a hybrid or online course before and 48% strongly agreed they would take another. The complete set of results from winter 2009 survey can be found online.
If you have any questions about the survey results, please contact Bob Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a ticket at http://my.umbc.edu/help/request.
