Blended Learning

Blended Learning

Blended learning can be defined as "the organic integration of thoughtfully selected and complementary face-to-face and online approaches and technologies (Garrison & Vaughan, 2008, p. 148). Also known as hybrid learning, this pedagogical approach focuses on improving educational transaction by merging a variety of face-to-face and online resources suited to the needs of a specific audience.
