Blended learning means that some face-to-face learning is replaced by online learning, making is possible to reduce the amount of time spent in class.
At a Food for Thought session on February 13, 2007, blended learning and where it might fit in at WPI was discussed. Following are resources that were used or referenced in the presentation.
