A white paper on (*yawn*) blended learning. "Blended learning mixes F2F and non-F2F activities, some performed synchronously, some asynchronously. As such, blended learning provides the flexibility to address a broad range of curricular and institutional needs, opportunities, and goals... More concrete definitions of blended learning, ones that are appropriate to your institution, college, or department, need to emerge from local curricular and institutional goals and priorities." The main impact of blended learning is to keep the riff-raff out by imposing (however minimally) a residency requirement. There's no such thing as open blended learning (at least, I've never sen evidence of any).
