This course has been developed to address the need for teachers and trainers to adopt a blended learning approach, which involves a combination of traditional classroom-based learning and remote distance learning formats.
The course focuses on the different experiences and expectations of learners when approaching the online learning experience, and how they may best be supported in moving into using differing online tools. The use of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is central in this unit and it will be used heavily in order to promote the culture of blended learning and realise its full potential.
