Increasingly, however, online learning is being implemented in brick-and-mortar schools in what is called blended learning; the content is becoming more and more robust for individual learners so that it motivates students to engage in deeper learning, and the communication technology is enhancing the ability of teachers and students to interact.” (emphasis added) Clayton M. Christensen, Professor, Harvard Business School Author of Disrupting Class #OTC11Tuesday, June 21, 2011
