About Blended Learning:
A definition of blended learning systems combines face-to-face instruction with computer mediated instruction (Graham, 2006). As students become more independent and self-directed learners, many still require direction and monitoring. This mix of online, at-home, directed, and independent study, considered a form of blended learning, complements this independence and self-direction. Blended learning has many forms, but is considered to be the merging of online and face-to-face teaching that combines face-to-face instruction with distance learning techniques using a variety of instructional strategies to incorporate learning into a student’s everyday life (Jelfs, Nathan & Barrett, 2004; Koohang, Behling & Behling, 2008). Educators and researchers from all disciplines try to determine the best practices and features of online and face- to-face learning and which type is appropriate in which settings (Chen & Looi, 2007). In the case of the Ogburn students, the blended learning approach includes online instructors as facilitators and the parents as a Learning Coach, with online experiences and self-directed off-line learning activities.
