Teaching modes, learning practices and components used to communicate learning are pillars of blended learning
Blended learning, multimedia content, supportive teaching tools, are the tools for promoting student engagement in classrooms. There is a need to further strengthen these systems of learning. We need to get the students fully engaged with the learning process.
Different learners have different requirements and therefore, they have different learning styles. There are kinaesthetic learners, visual learners, auditory learners and read and write learners. To engage students of different learning capabilities, there is the need to facilitate student engagement through active learning, multimedia, online learning, problem based learning and so on.
Any exercise of developing the learning environment must entail a combination of learning strategies like face to face learning and digital multi media. The key points in blended learning are teaching modes, learning practices and environment created by the instructor and the components he uses to communicate things.
Online, mobile and face to face learning are part and parcel of blended learning, which can lead to active learners, accountability of learners as well as teachers, team playing and transforming a student to a learner. The principle point of blended learning is the real time assessment of students.
