BLENDED LEARNING: A NEED FOR PRESENT ERA
Keywords:Learning, Blended Learning.
The concept of “blended learning” appeared in the discussions about education at the beginning of the 21st century at the moment when the concept of e-learning started to lose its credibility. Although this latter concept had many supporters in the 1990s, the end of the century brought as many opponents due to the fact that the students were not highly motivated and responsible to do all the work on their own and they felt isolated and unsupported while learning. Thus, a new concept had to be invented, not necessarily to replace e-learning but add to it. This paper gives an overview of the concept and process of blended learning, the key ingredients that form this process.
