About blended learning

At one time, the major approach to learning was the ‘face-to-face’ learning in a class-room setting. With the arrival of computers and then the Internet, the new approach of e-learning became more popular. Attempts to integrate these approaches led to the concept of blended learning. Of course, this is a ‘small’ and specific definition.

Today, many more learning interventions and approaches exist, and creating ‘the right mix’ of interventions leads to blended learning. Often, some type of e-learning is part of the blend, but not necessarily.

Some professionals suggest that all learning today is, or should be, a blend of different learning interventions, to be effective, relevant and inspiring. From a professional perspective, the chosen blend should be based on a good analysis of the issue to solve and the characteristics and context of the learner.
