  • Blended learning means many things to many people, even within our relatively small online learning
    community. It is referred to as both blended and hybrid learning, with little or no difference in the
    meaning of the terms among most educators. In general terms, blended learning combines online
    delivery of educational content with the best features of classroom interaction and live instruction
    to personalize learning, allow thoughtful reflection, and differentiate instruction from student to
    student across a diverse group of learners.
    Blended learning, combining
    the best elements of online and
    face-to-face education, is likely
    to emerge as the predominant
    teaching model of the future.
    Blending Learning: The Convergence of Online and F 5 ace-to-Face Education
    Definitions of blended learning range from some so broad that practically any learning experience
    that integrates some use of educational technology might qualify, to others that focus on a specific
    percentage combination of online curriculum and instruction in a face-to-face setting. A few of the
    many definitions of blended learning include:
    „. The integration of face-to-face and online learning to help enhance the classroom experience
    and extend learning through the innovative use of information and communications
    technology. Blended strategies enhance student engagement and learning through online
    activities to the course curriculum, and improve effectiveness and efficiencies by reducing
    lecture time.1
    „. “A course that blends online and face-to-face delivery. Substantial proportion of the content
    is delivered online, typically uses online discussions, and typically has some face-to-face
    meetings.” The Sloan Consortium defines blended courses as having between 30 percent
    and 79 percent of their content delivered online, with the remaining portion of the course
    content delivered by face-to-face instruction or other non web-based methods, such as
    paper textbooks.2
    „. The combination of multiple approaches to learning. Blended learning can be accomplished
    through the use of ‘blended’ virtual and physical resources.3
    Ultimately, the exact definition of blended learning, beyond some combination of online and faceto-
    face, may not matter. Along these lines, Dziuban, Hartman and Moskal (2004) in a research brief
    for EDUCAUSE titled “Blended Learning” noted:
    “Blended learning should be viewed as a pedagogical approach that combines the effectiveness
    and socialization opportunities of the classroom with the technologically enhanced active learning
    possibilities of the online environment, rather than a ratio of delivery modalities. In other words,
    blended learning should be approached not merely as a temporal construct, but rather as a
    fundamental redesign of the instructional model with the following characteristics:
    „. A shift from lecture- to student-centered instruction in which students become active and
    interactive learners (this shift should apply to the entire course, including face-to-face contact
    sessions);
    „. Increases in interaction between student-instructor, student-student, student-content, and
    student-outside resources;
    „. Integrated formative and summative assessment mechanisms for students and instructor.”4
    Most importantly, in this view, blended learning represents a shift in instructional strategy. Just
    as online learning represents a fundamental shift in the delivery and instructional model of
    distance learning, blended learning offers the possibility to significantly change how teachers and
    administrators view online learning in the face-to-face setting. “The widespread adoption and
    availability of digital learning technologies has led to increased levels of integration of computermediated
    instructional elements into the traditional F2F [face to face] learning experience.

  • Ambient Insight has last month released a report on how the global market for self-paced eLearning products and services will grow through till 2014. It estimates the market had reached US $ 27.1 billion in 2009. The demand is growing at a 5 year compound annual growth rate of 12.8% and will take the world market to US $ 49.6 billion by 2014.
    Key highlights (as shared in the executive summary are):
    - North America will continue to be the biggest market.
    - By 2014 Asia (which includes Australia and New Zealand in this report) would overtake Western Europe to become the second largest market after North America. The compound annual growth rate in Asia is a very healthy 33.5%.
    - East Europe is second fastest in growth terms at 23.0%. Vibrant outsourcing hubs have come up in countries such as Belarus and the Ukraine.
    - There is resistance in regional markets to content that has been translated but not localized. This is creating demand for local content in each region.
    - There’s virtually no self-paced eLearning being used in primary and secondary education in Japan, proving that it is a ‘myth’ to assume technologically advanced regions are more likely to adopt self-paced eLearning. In contrast 100% of primary and secondary schools in Korea and Singapore offer some type of online education.
    Link: http://trends.learning-managers.net/trends-reports/learning-reports

    - Adoption of self-paced eLearning is now wide spread across buying segments. North America where corporate are still the top buyers, will see academic buyers emerge as top buyers in next five years.
    - New tool and learning platform suppliers are entering the market at a steady rate in each region even in more mature markets like North America.”

    23. 23. • Advanced telecommunication infrastructures among the Asia Pacific countries has lead to successful learning initiatives. • In Asia, most companies have already switched to LMS and started to enjoy training cost benefits. • Asia is fast moving towards a knowledge economy. • LMS results in knowledge accumulation which helps during the time of mergers and acquisitions in Asia. • High level of interaction in online learning environment that positively affects the efficacy of blended learning. Blended Learning - An Overview The Asia Perspective
    24. 24. Findings • The extent to which learning is learner-centered or teacher- centered also appears subject to cultural variation. • Asian learners are generally found to be teacher-centered. • Strong preference towards conventional methods where content is communicated from instructor to the learners. • Higher uncertainty avoidance, high power distance and low individualism. • Asia is aiming to meet the shortfall of knowledge workers by wider applications of e-learning tools.
    25. 25. Solutions • Blended learning environment provides ample opportunity for communication, fundamental for effective interaction • Learners utilize the interaction features of LMS to communicate with peers and instructors. • LMS provides a suite of tools to enhance teaching and learning by delivering course materials and provide communication channels via a common interface. • LMS include asynchronous forum boards and synchronous chats, thereby allowing learners to discuss course related issues and engage in exchanges of ideas.

Summary • Blended Learning is already in place – mostly • A great need for a single easy-to-use system to manage blended learning in one place • The system should make it easy for the users and administrators to adapt to the new training forms • An LMS is a great choice for such a system. The LMS needs to be well designed to cater to various components in an integrated manner
