In 2003 the University of Southern Queensland announced that, owing to cost and demand pressures, student learning materials would be progressively migrated to a 'hybrid' model, the centrepiece of which was to be a resource-rich
CD-ROM. This was to be supplemented, where appropriate, with print and online material. One of the first courses in the Faculty of Business to be converted was ECO2000 Macroeconomics for Business and Government. In this paper the pedagogical underpinnings of the hybrid model are outlined and its application to ECO2000 is discussed. Results of surveys of students and assessment outcomes are also discussed.
