    I teach a high school science class in a hybrid format. I have used Blackboard to post and collect assignments but found it to be too click-heavy. Now I post assignments on my website. Students are given the assignment in advance. This could be to watch a lecture and take notes, complete an online tutorial, a choice assignment or to make a series of posts in an online discussion board. All assignments are electronic so I have a time stamp on their work. If it is submitted before the bell rings to start class, students are marked present but do not need to attend. Those that do not complete the work in advance just come to our normally scheduled class to do the assignment. I call these "flex days" and have found them to increase student motivation and grades. Based on feedback from previous semesters, I have started to hold a class discussion and to give a quiz during the class following the flex day to bring everyone back on the same page.

    Hello Karl,
    Your project sounds interesting and I've also thought about working this into my own math classes. One tool I've used to deliver content is the Livescribe Smartpen. I have students use them to see and hear worked out solutions. The benefit is that you can write and record your audio at the same time using a traditional pen and paper approach. It's quick and easy. Here's an example on my site for polynomial long division.
    I've also used screencasting software to teach calculator skills and incorporate graphing. On the Mac I've used Screenflow which I really like, and a TI-83 emulator. Here are some samples to look at if you're interested, Darren's Calculator Skills.
    Good luck on your project,
    Darren Duarte
