What Is Blended Learning?

Blended courses combine face-to-face and online course delivery modes to reduce “seat time” on campus and offer students more flexibility.

Blended course numbers are growing. According to Tony Picciano in the Sloan-C View, “It is a revolution that is going on throughout higher education [...]. Blended learning has the potential to evolve into the dominant model of instructional delivery in higher education in the not-too-distant future.”

Blended courses have design considerations that differ from both face-to-face and online modes. To create a successful blend, course goals and teaching and learning roles must be reconsidered.
