Blended Course Design Resources and Toolkit

Seattle University's Center for Digital Learning and Innovation has created an interactive Blended Flow Toolkit to assist faculty with designing blended courses that successfully integrate online and classroom learning.  Documentation of the process and goals of this project has been published as an EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) Brief entitled Innovating with Purpose: The Blended Flow Toolkit for Designing Blended/Hybrid Courses.

Blended/Hybrid Course Description

This article outlines the definition of a blended/hybrid course and what it entails.


This article outlines a study from the University of Texas at San Antonio that examines publicly available guides, documents, and books that espouse best or effective  practices in blended course design to determine commonalities among such practices.

Creating a blended course is one way to give yourself the flexibility that allows you to be prepared to teach to your own high standards. Blended courses weave together the best of online teaching with the best active learning and community-building strategies of face-to-face classes.
