Blended Learning

Blended learning generally refers to infusing the best of traditional schools with the transformative power of technology.

Definition of Blended Learning

The Clayton Christensen Institute defines blended learning as:

a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace; at least in part in a supervised brick-and-mortar location away from home; and the modalities along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.
