To meet new educational demands, Sri Chaitanya Institute in Hyderabad of Telangana has now launched the first HyFlex (Hybrid Flexible) apprenticeship in India. The model aims to provide a quality educational experience where students can participate in a way that allows them to be comfortable and not to be left behind in the pursuit of education, ANI reported.
In the first phase, 120 classrooms will be served across the country.
The main feature of the HyFlex model is to combine face-to-face classroom teaching and online (hybrid) technology in a single course and allow students to choose how and when to participate (flexible). HyFlex education will be delivered in several ways in the institution which gives equal access to education even to students who find it difficult to take courses offline.
