Hybrid Internet Courses


Hybrid internet courses offer a combination of in-class and Internet instruction.  Classes meet face-to-face once a month.  The rest of the instruction is offered online.  There are regular regular weekly assignments and quizzes, and ongoing discussion in the chat room and on the discussion list.  To be successful with this mode of delivery, students must complete the quizzes and assignments on time every week

Two hybrid Internet classes will be offered by Professor Ted Goertzel in the Fall semester of 2009.  Because of the Labor Day weekend, the first classes will be offered on Thursday evening, September 3.  Subsequent classes will meet on Saturdays:  October 3, November 14 and December 19

50:920:301   Methods and Techniques of Social Research
    Meets Thursday, September 3, 6 to 7:20 p.m. and 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturdays September 26, November 14 and December 19 in Fine Arts 110.  Additional class sessions, both online and face-to-face, will be offered at different times depending on student interest and need. 

50:920:425   Cyberspace and Society
    Meets Thursday, September 3, 7:30 to 8:50 p.m. and 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays September 26, November 14 and December 19 in the Campus Center North Conference Room (in the basement at the end of the hall).   Additional class sessions, both online and face-to-face, will be offered at different times depending on student interest and need. 

The textbooks, assignments and final examination for the Methods and Techniques course will be the same as  in the conventional sessions of the class, and it will meet the requirement for criminal justice and sociology majors.  The Cyberspace and Society course will count towards the sociology major.  For more information, click on the links above.

Students must have Internet access to take these courses, either at home or in a computer center at Rutgers or elsewhere.  The Methods Course uses statistical software that may be installed on Windows computers and which is also available at the computer labs at Rutgers.  The Methods course uses narrated powerpoint presentations each week, so it is useful to have powerpoint installed on your computer. 

During the semester, Dr. Goertzel and/or his assistants will be available on campus in Camden by appointment to meet with students who need individualized help.
