  5. 5. Benefits of Blended Learning The blended learning approach offers the advantage of flexibility, convenience, and increased opportunities for interaction with the instructor and other students. [Pulaski, Behling, M., Klingner, Gordon, B. “The Technological Age of Teaching.” Teaching Inclusively in Higher Education] Until recently, one of the big questions in distant education was whether it delivered comparable outcomes to traditional classroom instruction. Now, the question generating research and discussion is why not have the best of both worlds? [Vernadakis, N., Antoniou, P., Giannousi, M., Zetou, E., & Kioumourtzoglou, E. “Comparing hybrid learning with traditional approaches on learning the microsoft office power point 2003 program in tertiary education.” Computers & Education. (2009)] With many faculty equally preferring both [online discussion and classroom discussion], cross-pollination in hybrid classes will continue to flourish. [Baglione, S., Nastanski, M. “The Superiority of Online Discussion.” The Quarterly Review of Distance Education. (2007).]
