  • The blended learning community has had a lengthy discussion on what to call this new modality: blended hybrid mixed-mode Most prefer to call it *blended* - because it integrates so well, that it becomes a new type of delivery system. Not online, not face-to-face.
  • All manner of combinations can be called “blended”, but BL is different from “web-enhanced” in which no seat-time is replaced.
