Community colleges to try blended studies
Add in-person help for online education
In a partnership billed as the first of its kind, the online education provider edX has teamed up with two Massachusetts community colleges to offer computer science classes that will combine virtual and classroom instruction. Beginning next term, Bunker Hill and MassBay community colleges will offer versions of an online MIT course that will be supplemented with on-campus classes. Those classes, to be taught by instructors at the two-year schools, will give students a chance to review the online material and receive personal help.
