Online instruction has become part of many academic programs. With online instruction students can be located away from the physical classroom, a mode called distance learning. Sometimes online/distance instruction is coupled with face-to-face instruction in a hybrid or blended learning approach. San Francisco State University and the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis use a hybrid approach to conduct several courses in their joint MBA program taught in Nice, France, and San Francisco, California. This paper looks at the first two years of experience in this program to examine faculty and student perceptions of the effectiveness of the distance delivery parts of the courses using different online tools. A survey of faculty and students who participated in the hybrid learning courses in the program was conducted, and the results are reported in the paper. The paper concludes that synchronous online tools were generally effective but asynchronous online tools were not.
