Blending Learning: Effective Use of Technology in Classrooms

Dr. Poonam Dhull, Rajesh Beniwal

Abstract: Nowadays, many learning strategies exist, such as computer-based learning, web-based learning, and others. E-learning is an emerging tool that uses advanced technology to provide training and development in higher education. This particular system is used as a reason to replace the traditional approach that has been used for a long time. However, E-learning still has some limitation and they need to be overcome. Blending of E-learning with traditional learning includes an integration of face-to-face classroom learning with technology enhanced online material. It provides the convenience, speed and cost effectiveness of e-learning with the personal touch of traditional learning. Blended Learning is a mixture of online learning and classroom learning that contains some of the facilities of online courses with the presence of face-to-face communication. It requires new pedagogic skills in order that the learner gains the most from online programs. Oliver (2005) and his colleagues, provided three key elements as guidance for teachers and educators on how to design and develop blended learning. These elements are: learning tasks, learning resources and learning support. The blended learning environment motivates students to participate in online classes more eagerly as they have the opportunity to meet and discuss virtually with their teachers and classmates. The present paper concludes that blended learning approaches offer the most flexible and scalable route to E-Learning.
