This paper raises the question: What is the appropriate proportion for face-to-face and online sessions when courses are taught in a hybrid learning format? Proportions of online and face-toface sessions in six institutions that utilize hybrid learning format were reviewed. The review indicates a loosely defined proportion between the two formats, with ratios varying from 75% online and 25% face-to-face to 13% online and 87% face-to-face. The paper proposes three stakeholders: students, professors, and institutions that need to be considered to determine the proportion of online and face-to-face sessions. The paper highlights some attractive features of hybrid teaching format with 50% each for online and face-to-face. The paper concludes by recommending future research to consider the concerns of the primary stakeholders.
