Abstract: This best practices paper examines the design and implementation of active and authentic learning experiences in two Web hybrid environments with the additional coupling of incorporating community building to support knowledge sharing and overall engagement. Two guiding research questions serve to support the project – the first is centered on incorporating technology in an authentic context and the second explores the use of course design elements to encourage community building and engagement. The end result is that these best practices in distance and flexible education should encourage innovation and the creative discovery of new philosophies, products, and ultimately of viewing the world in relation to a student’s area of study or discipline.
