Blended learning which, its name suggests, blends online learning with traditional methods of learning and development. It is a new instructional strategy, based on the non-linear and interactive features of the digital learning and instruction through the web. Exploring the literature review, the purpose of the study was to get a deeper understanding of the characteristics, methodological and pedagogical perspectives of blended learning in an Indian context. Observations from content analysis revealed that the impact of e-learning in the learning environment made tremendous potentialities and it could revolutionize the teaching and learning process. Blended learning is the most logical and natural evolution of our learning agenda. It suggests an elegant solution to the challenges of traditional learning and development to the needs of individuals. Model-driven design provides a sustainable approach that reduces some cost of the complex curriculum development and improves the sustainability of curriculum innovation. As a result of the study, blended learning will focus on optimizing the mix of classroom instruction with online learning, and performance support tools that can maximize the total impact on students' learning experiences.
