The majority of students prefer hybrid learning experiences that blend face-to-face and online instruction, but show a clear preference for significant face-to-face time.

70% of students prefer completely or mostly face-to-face instruction, while 55% of students prefer hybrid learning environments incorporating both face-to-face and digital instruction. Both face-to-face and hybrid learning create opportunities for digital learning technology; the challenge for institutions is to incorporate technology in ways that are meaningful and additive to the course and classroom experience.
