What Works in Blended Learning

What Works in Blended Learning
Quote: “Blended learning is the latest buzzword in corporate training. It sounds so simple: mix e-learning with other types of training delivery. But questions persist. What are the best ways to blend delivery types? When do you blend? What blends work best with what? And the $million question: Will the term blended learning replace e-learning?”
Comment: Blended learning treats technology the way it should be treated in an educational context: as a tool to achieve intended outcomes. Technology in learning affords two benefits: increased access to learning…increased effectiveness of learning.
While this article describes the process of a formal blended learning project, I think it’s important to realize that simply adding a discussion forum, mailing list, or collaborative space, to an existing course can be an effective start.
