A hybrid flipped course has been used for two years in a first year introductory engineeringcourse. In Fall 2013 12 sections of 20 – 25 students each used the course. The course isconsidered a “hybrid” because the textbook is delivered on-line (an ebook), as are a majority ofthe homework exercises. The course is considered “flipped” because students are quizzed (on-line) on the course ebook before material is covered in class. This allows instructors to focus onmore advanced and active learning during class time.The purpose of this paper is to describe the hybrid flipped course format in detail, focusing onthe ebook and on-line homework. The results of surveys and focus groups with students andinstructors will be used to explore the functionality of hybrid flipped courses.
