Blended Learning

Enrollments in blended (also called hybrid) courses and programs has grown significantly in the past few years. The Sloan-C definition of blended learning at the course level is:

"Blended courses integrate online with traditional face-to-face class activities in a planned, pedagogically valuable manner, where a portion of face-to-face time is replaced by online learning activities."

Institutions with major blended learning programs include UIC, UW-Milwaukee, and the Univ. of Central Florida. Institutions have many reasons for offering blended courses and programs - optimizing access, learning, convenience, flexibility, and resources.
