How to set up hybrid classes
What's a hybrid class?
Simply put, a hybrid class is a session that can be attended either in person or online. So you will be streaming the class from a venue with participants in a room, while other students will be following the session online.
How to set up a hybrid class on your schedule
On your schedule, you should create 2 different classes that happen at the same time: one at a physical venue, and one at your online location
. Your students who register for the online session will get their confirmation email and reminder email with a button to join the online class in the the usual way.
Once you've set up your classes it would look something like this, you can add 'online' and 'in-person' to each class title for easy differentiation:
If you want (and you probably do!), you can price each class differently, set maximum class sizes independently (especially if you need that for the in-person class), and you can even connect each session to different passes or memberships. You'll also see 2 different registration and attendance lists for each of these two classes (so that way you know who was there in person, or who joined online).
