eCore Information


Dr. Hassan Ali El-Najjar was born in Gaza, Palestine, in 1950. In 1967, he left to Jordan, then to Egypt, Libya, and the UAE, before immigrating to the USA, in 1986. He has been teaching sociology and anthropology courses at Dalton State College since 1991.

He is now teaching the Introduction to Sociology (SOCI-1101) course in three different ways: Face-to-face, Hybrid, and Online. He also teaches Social Problems (SOCI-1160) course as hybrid and online. In Spring, he teaches Marriage & Family (SOCI-2293) as a face-to-face course.

Basic differences between the three courses:

  • The face-to-face course requires meeting regularly in a classroom.
  • The Hybrid course requires meeting in classroom half of the regular time. The other half is conducted online.
  • The Online course is completely taught and evaluated through online activities, except for the unit exams, which are taken on campus.

The main objective of this diversity in delivering courses is to enable various categories of students to get higher education, in a way that suits their circumstances.

In particular, this diversity in delivering higher education aims at serving students who are living far away in a state or even in other states or countries, as well as students who do not have time for, or are incapable of, attending face-to-face classes.
