Blended learning combines the best in-person instruction and online technology to deliver student-centered learning. It allows for the instruction to be personalized to a student's needs.
Blended learning takes place when a student learns at least in part online, with some element of student control over the time, place, path, and/or pace of their learning, while also enjoying the benefits that come with education at a brick-and-mortar school.
