Abstract. The behavior of students taking a liberal studies chemistry course using a hybrid instruction method was studied. Results indicate that the course effectively engaged students, both in terms of online activity and course completion, with students in the hybrid course obtaining a significantly higher completion rate than previous courses. Fears regarding the lack of academic integrity of the hybrid course were shown to be unfounded.
