What is Blended Learning?
Blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through delivery of content and instruction via digital and online media with
some element of student control over time, place, path, or pace. While still attending a "brick-and-mortar" school structure, face-to-face classroom methods are combined
with computer-mediated activities.
