This paper explains that blended learning describes learning or training events or activities where e-learning is integrated into traditional forms of training by using many methods and resources that are derived from multiple information sources. The author points out that the unstructured learning environment, which characterizes blended learning, allows students to learn in the way that best suits them. The paper relates that on-line learning can be used in all grades but this use varies greatly depending on the grade and the teacher's own abilities to maximize the use of the computer and the Internet.

From the Paper:

"Blended learning must take place in both an on-line and off-line setting. The dual setting of on-line and off-line learning are combined to administrate the sharing of content, establishing and continuing communication, and stimulating interaction. The web enhances learning in that it aids in the pragmatic goals as well as augmenting the pedagogical goals. Another feature is that there is both structured and unstructured learning. Unstructured learning can take place on-line through both synchronous and asynchronous conversations (ie. on-line chats and also message boards)."
