Blended Learning
Halan, Deepak
Journal of Educational Technology, v2 n1 p20-24 Apr-Jun 2005
Blended learning basically refers to using several methods for teaching. It can be thought to be a learning program where more than one delivery mode is being used with the ultimate goal of optimizing the learning result and cost of program delivery. Examples of blended learning could be the combination of technology-based resources and traditional print materials or group and individual study or even structured pace study and self-paced study. With today's prevalence of high technology, blended learning is mostly understood as the use of resources which combine e-learning with other educational resources. Given the state of education in India, where the student population is huge, the state of universities is not good. Learning resources are few, there are serious space constraints, and budgets are low. This emergence of new information and communication technologies offers hope in the form of alternative teaching strategies like blended learning. This article provides descriptions of different types of learning blends, points out the benefits of blended learning, and provides a list of notes and references.
