Blended Learning


 

Blended Learning

Blended Learning allows course developers and tutors to add new innovative features to their courses (e.g. the sharing of homework, online discussion boards, multimedia input, information from the internet) without losing the strength of face-to-face contact.

 


Blended Learning courses help students become autonomous learners by providing practice and experience in autonomy during the course. Offline, face-to-face classes with the course tutor are meant to introduce new topical issues connected to linguistic structures, clarify online issues brought up in the previous week(s), and reflect on the process of learning. The number of hours in the classroom and online may vary according to each course & course building institution, as well as the objectives one wants to reach.

 

 

More information on different aspects of Blended Learning can be found, for example, in a Blended Learning Guide created  within the framework of b-learning4all project under the LEONARDO DA VINCI Programme at http://b-learning4all.eu/ (in English).
