    • 1 What is Blended Learning i-Learn Centre, together withAcademicAffairs Division, are gearing towards the Blended Learning concept by introducing it to UiTM students and lecturers in 2009. The project involves lecturers and students both at the main campus and branch campuses.The face-to-face lecture session is integrated or blended with the online tutorial session as part of the effort to surmount the pressing issue of space constraints. The lecture session is handled as usual but tutorial into e-totorial with the same weightage. Generally there are two initiatives regarding blended learning. The first one concerns the replacement of tutorial session of suitable courses into e-tutorial. This type of Blended Learning in UiTM comes in several models based on its time distribution namely the 50:50 model, 60:40 model, and 70:30 model. The first model means that the lecturers conduct the 50 percent of the total time handling face-to-face sessions and the other 50 percent is handled online. The second model depicts that the lecturers conduct 60 percent of the total time handling face-to-face sessions and the other 40 percent is handled online and the same goes for the 70:30. This allows the lecturers the flexibility of familiarizing themselves with the blended approach as well as organizing their time according to the model that suits them the best. The second type of blended learning does not replace the tutorial session but rather an extension of the learning time enjoyed by the students. This approach is actually an asynchronous learning time for the students to be able to continue with their learning and communicate with their respective lecturers beyond the classroom time. Blended Learning is the process incorporating many different ways in which people learn (learning style) through the use of “blended” virtual and physical resources that contain a variety of learning activities with the use of technology, lecturer and peer interaction. A typical example of the delivery method of blended learning would be a combination of technology-based materials along with face-to-face instruction used in the content delivery. A lecturer can begin a course with a well-structure lesson in the classroom, and then to proceed with follow-up tutorial online. The students then join the online tutorial to continue the learning experience. The integration of a Learning Management System and the traditional face-to-face instruction also befits the term blended learning. i-Learn Centre, UiTM and Blended Learning For Lecturers Guideline
