Not all students learn the same way.

A Blended Learning approach is one, which in most cases, will enhance and extend the learning opportunities for our 21st Century learners. Blended Learning combines and aligns learning undertaken in face-to-face sessions with learning opportunities created online. It uses online technology to not just supplement, but transform and improve the learning process.

Successful blended learning occurs when technology and teaching inform each other: material becomes dynamic when it reaches students of varying learning styles. In other words, hybrid classrooms on the Internet can reach and engage students in a truly customizable way.

Most trainers in blended classrooms use some version of a course management system (CMS) application to connect with students online. Through platforms like these, students can access video of lectures, track assignments and progress, interact with trainers and peers, and review other supporting materials, like PowerPoint presentations or scholarly articles.

Does Blended Learning work?

A 2010 meta-analysis published by the U.S. Department of Education suggests it does. According to the report, students exposed to both face-to-face and online education were more successful than students entirely in one camp or the other.
