Afternoon all,  

The recent proliferation of distance learning led, inexorably, to passage of the TEACH Act, making the delivery of instruction via the Internet a more complete experience for students. In just the past few years, however, Hybrid Learning has established itself as a major player in terms of how instruction is being delivered. For arguments sake, let's say that a course is being offered in a hybrid format, such that 50% of the course is offered face-to-face, and 50% is offered online.  

Do the provisions of the TEACH Act apply (given that the institution is in compliance), and if so, to what extent?  

Thanks for the assist!
