In semi-flipping, differently from the flipped classroom, students can watch the videos in the classroom as well. The research was done a private HEI. The methodology adopted was qualitative and quantitative. The quantitative data were collected through a questionnaire from google forms tool, applied to the students of the IES, in its Venda Nova unit. For the qualitative approach, participant observation was used. This study was based on an earlier research applied in the same institution, when there was an attempt to implant the flipped classroom model. The application of the semi-flipped model aimed to remedy the main obstacles presented by the implementation of the flipped classroom model.
