5 Reasons Your College Needs HyFlex Classrooms (and the Arena)
2020 has been a year unlike any other for Colleges and Universities largely due to the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the ways these institutions have adapted to this crisis is through the adoption of the HyFlex model.
The HyFlex model provides a flexible classroom structure for students and educators, allowing students to attend classes online or in person due to their personal preferences. Online students are provided with the same tools available to them in person via live broadcasts of lectures, the ability to raise their hand and ask questions, and even the educators’ ability to see all their students at once as they interact.

3. Increased Class Sizes
Engagement in large classes is very hard to obtain and often results in lectures that might as well have been videos. The HyFlex model splits students into smaller groups, those that are in-person and those that are online. In-person student are far more comfortable engaging with the professor by asking or answering questions when they’re only perceiving a small group of peers around them. This concept is the exact same for online students as well who only see the instructor and are located behind their in-person peers.
