Blended learning provides a combination of face-to-face learning and dynamic digital activities and content that facilitate anytime/anyplace learning.

Different teaching methods are needed to appeal to the various learning styles of students. Some students like learning in a traditional classroom or groups while others want to learn online and independently.

Face-to-face teaching is great for developing interpersonal skills and thinking on your feet, while online and collaborative learning nurture a range of other core-competencies that are highly valued by employers.
