Abstract: 
Non-traditional students require non-traditional facilitation methods in the classroom. Facilitation methods are transforming to include interactive tutorials, videos, and games that engage the adult student learner in a blended or flex-net classroom. There are significant benefits for educational models that consist of both an online and blended format, that combines face-to-face and interactive activities. The non-traditional student and non-traditional faculty require more hands on guidance to learn effective navigation of advanced technology. Promoting student-faculty interaction and a more efficient use of institutional resources will be one of the best new strategies and trends for non-traditional adult student learners in higher education.
