Post-secondary institutions are increasingly incorporating blended learning into the curriculum, yet there are many possible configurations for blended (or hybrid) courses. This project compared two hybrid courses that were offered in the General Education curriculum at a community college. One course employed a front-loaded design, whereby students completed online lessons and assessments prior to attending classes. The other utilized a bookend blend, with online components before and after the face-to-face session.

Student activity was tracked and compared across both classes to determine whether one model resulted in more engagement with the online course materials. Video viewing data and online activity logs from the Learning Management System (LMS) were used as proxies for engagement. Results suggest that the configuration of the course had a definite impact on student engagement.
