What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:

Part Online

In part online, with some element of control over the time, place, path, or pace of their learning.

Part Away From Home

In part in a brick-and-mortar location away from home.

Along a Learning Path

The modalities along a student’s learning path are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.

Why Blended Learning?

Blended learning has the potential to break the century-old factory model of education and unlock:

Customized Learning

Online learning offers individual data, timely feedback, and flexible pathways.

Competency-based Learning

Control over pace means students advance based on mastery, not time.

Anytime, Anywhere Learning
