Your Blended Learning FAQ – Answered

  • Blended learning is an instructional model that combines both online and offline instruction.

    Blended learning doesn’t mean that a course is restructured so that the majority of it is online; instead, the in-person and online elements work together to create a richer learning experience for students.

  • There are several blended learning models in use today, including these:

    Nurture Model: Prioritize in-person learning for the earliest students, scaling to most- or all-online learning in upper grades/years

    Bookend Model: Host first-year and fourth-year students on campus while sophomore and junior courses remain online

    Rotation Model: Divide classes into multiple groups and rotate online, in-person, and collaborative or lab-based learning

    The right blended learning models for a given school, academic level, or discipline will vary. Your institution’s current technology offerings and physical space limitations also influence which model to use.

  • While the terms hybrid learning and blended learning are used interchangeably, there is a slight difference between the two. Blended learning is centered on using online instruction such as videos, discussion boards and articles to complement in-person classes. Hybrid learning uses online material as an alternative to in-person material and is meant to create a flexible learning experience where students choose their learning model based on their needs.
