The HyFlex Experiment

Palomar College began offer HyFlex classes in the Fall of 2021.

HyFlex is short of Hybrid-Flexible and is defined as courses that meet face-to-face in a classroom but also have a Zoom component for every session. Students can choose each class meeting whether to attend in person or online. This provides flexibility for our students.

For students: There is an array of HyFlex classes being offered across the campus in multiple subjects. Check the class notes in your latest class schedule to determine which might be offered in the HyFlex format. Don’t see HyFlex in a class you need, send an email Distance Education Coordinator Erin Hiro at explaining why HyFlex would work for you and I will lobby on your behalf.

For faculty: If you are interested in teaching HyFlex, there is paid training available now. Contact Distance Education Coordinator Erin Hiro at
