Abstract

Many online courses have been established since the advent of the internet, allowing students access to new kinds of educational resources and pathways. However, should this method of instruction be strictly reserved for home users alone, or can we combine this new technology with that of traditional classroom pedagogy? Blended Learning does just that, and provides students with educational opportunities that surpass either form of teaching alone. We can minimize the drawbacks inherent in each form by reinforcing them with the positive aspects of one another. Rather than completely removing ourselves from physical human interaction during the learning process, we can use an online format in concert with it instead. Using this theory, students would receive the physical experience and social interaction they need, while allowing for increased collaboration and a variety of viewpoints outside of the classroom as well.
