Abstract: 21st Century teachers face challenges across different mediums so equipping teachers with valuable training is paramount, and emphasizing technical training to ensure analysis, synthesis, and application of learning is key. The global pandemic added difficulty in the adoption of materials to an online platform, while offering students the same classroom experience. To help students navigate online, requires training and specific course design. Research indicates the best way to increase student achievement and to navigate through the digital transformation is to ensure that teachers are qualified with specialized skills (King & Newman, 2001; Killion & Hirsh, 2013; Vial, 2019). Specialized training and course development featuring adaptive release of materials was used to enhance courses as they went online in the HyFlex format. This paper will highlight how the pandemic inspired new course design, utilizing adaptive release functions allowing students to enjoy the same learning experience regardless of the delivery.
