Blended Learning: The Future

August 16, 2018

Considering the buzz that blended learning could be the future of higher education, Imperial College London is experimenting with its teaching methodology by offering on-line courses for their engineering students as a supplement for their classroom-based learning. It seems like the students have hooked on to this model of advanced learning. If this online learning model succeeds, the college may extend and replicate this model to other disciplines like business, science and medicine. When the MOOC movement was really threatening, it looks like this model will bring back the interest in print books along with the online supplement. I’m sure a lot of people will view it with interest, and this idea may get replicated elsewhere. Wishing the college all the very best.
