  14. HCCC Students… • 5% single parent • 46% work full or part

    time • 60% female • 65% plan to transfer • 59% take at least 1 online course • 30 yrs. - Average age of online only students • 19 yrs. - Average age of campus only students
  15. HCCC Internet Academy… • …has offered totally online 2-year Associate Degree

    programs since 1999. • …currently offers eighteen 2-year degree programs totally online. • …offers three 1-year certificates totally online. – Medical Coding is a 1-year certificate that is only available online. • 75% of HCCC’s full-time faculty teach 1 or more online courses.
  16. Blended Programs & Courses • HCCC offers a total of forty

    2-year Associate Degree programs. All of them can be completed at least partially online- so they can all be considered “blended programs.” • However, HCCC has not been aggressive in offering blended courses. The NGLC grant has provided us the opportunity to blend every course required for the Business  Admin-­‐  AAS  degree   program.  
  17. NGLC Grant Benefits to HCCC • Professional Development: – 12 seasoned online

    instructors are developing 16 new blended courses. •  2-day workshop with Tanya Joosten •  1-day workshop with Tracy Sleep •  1-day workshop with Alejandra Pickett • New Student Service Resources – Starfish – SmarThinking – SUNY SLN Commons / Social Network – Open Course Library / other digital resources  
  18. Benefits continued… •  Blended Program: Business Administration AAS –  All

    required courses and Developmental Math. –  Of great benefit to working students, students living off campus, and students who do not benefit from totally online courses. •  Collaboration with other institutions: –  SUNY Albany –  SUNY Learning Network –  Finger Lakes Community College •  A research project on campus adds to a collegiate atmosphere –  Faculty and student awareness. –  Contribution to the knowledge collective.

    – Student confusion – Demographically Challenged – Lack of Hybrid training – Lack of Hybrid best practices
