Blended learning and social distancingBlended learning aims to make the best use of learning time and methods. With our current virus-related restrictions, the selection of optimum blends of activities is perhaps more important than ever before. Although blends are usually thought of as a combination of classroom and online learning, they can also be a blend of activities outside of the classroom. For example, eLearning followed by a videoconference lesson on interpersonal skills, or technology enhanced learning followed later by an online tutorial with a trainer.
