Blended learning refers to any educational activity that combines traditional classroom (offline) teaching with online teaching and activities. The traditional classroom content and the online content must overlap to some extent, and must compliment and scaffold each other, for the learning to be blended. A blended learning activity that is well-designed can combine all the benefits of the traditional classroom (conversation and interaction) with the benefits of the online classroom (mobility and flexibility).
