Blended Learning

What is “Blended Learning”?

Blended Learning means learning through the use of a blend of educational resources. Different approaches to learning – e.g. face-to-face sessions, electronic teaching/learning concepts like computer-based training (CBT) or e-learning tools and techniques - are combined in a didactically sensible way to establish an organized and continually tutored further education arrangement.

Blended learning efficiently integrates basically different educational approaches in such a way that the advantages of the one are used to compensate the disadvantages of the others.

Blended learning facilitates independent learning by each individual learner.

By combining a multitude of different resources, the whole becomes more than the sum of its parts. In this way, a maximum learning success is obtained.
Blended learning controls the transfer of knowledge and intensifies both learning processes and communication, thus opening pathways towards a new learning culture.
