Blended learning refers to the integration of the traditional in class learning (Face-To-Face - F2F) with online (or eLearning) learning delivery models. The synergy between the models aims to deliver the most efficient and effective balance to student and academic alike.

It should be noted that blended learning is not just a matter of transferring the existing notes of a module to the Learning Management System. It involves integrating a mix of delivery tools and methods and an understanding of using the right tool - in the right situation  and for the right purpose.

Blended learning has therefore three primary components:

  • In-person classroom activities for F2F delivery
  • Online learning materials
  • Structured independent study time guided by the lecture material and skills developed during the classroom experience.
