Until recently, instructional delivery has been separated into predefined silos. A given course was delivered face-to-face (traditional), web enhanced, hybrid, or online with the implicit understanding that these are mutually-exclusive delivery mechanisms in which the student had to pre-select one, and only one, of these options. BlendFlex breaks down these silos by providing students the flexibility and convenience to decide which methods of instructional delivery best meets their learning needs and styles during any given point within a semester. At CGTC students enrolled in BlendFlex courses have the opportunity to sit for instruction anytime, anywhere on any mobile device or in the traditional classroom setting. This presentation will discuss how one college designed and deployed the BlendFlex model of blended learning, the technology required for its deployment, the professional development deemed necessary for faculty teaching in the environment, the student support resources required and course outcomes.
