In a modern metropolitan university it is difficult to accommodate adult students whose work schedules are not compatible with class schedules. These incompatibilities arise because, for example, the university cannot offer enough sections to meet the needs of every student. Another source of scheduling difficulty is that students' work shifts change throughout the semester, making it impossible to commit to any particular time slot for a course. In this poster session, we will demonstrate how we have utilized video lectures and course management software to deliver the full course content for a calculus course to students who cannot attend every lecture. The result is a hybrid online/classroom-based course in which all students have the same access to the instructor and to the resources developed in the classroom, including lectures and lecture notes. We will also indicate how this approach can be used to develop a "field-tested" online course.
