9 Components of Blended Learning 1. Synchronous (live) Classroom format 2. Synchronous (live) online format 3. Asynchronous (not live) self- paced format
10 Components of Blended Learning Let’s review what choices we have under each synchronous and asynchronous format.
12 Components of Blended Learning Internet conferencing Audio Conferencing (i.e., phone conferencing) Live Video via satellite or Videoconferencing Virtual Online Classroom Instant Messaging 2. Synchronous Electronic Components (not limited to)
13 Components of Blended Learning On-line self-paced Learning Content (Web pages) E-mail, Discussion Forums EPSS (Electronic Support Systems) & Job Aids Web/Computer-Based instruction Books Articles CD-ROM Audio (disc/tape) Video (disc/tape) White papers Archived Live Events 3. Asynchronous Components (not limited to)
14 Components of Blended Learning Within the scope of today’s presentation, let’s review some advantages and disadvantages of few synchronous and asynchronous components of blended learning.
15 Advantages and Disadvantages of Blended Learning Components Motivation Responsiveness Experiences Team Building Disadvantages of Classroom Instructor Scheduling Audience Travel Physical Advantages of Classroom
16 Advantages and Disadvantages of Blended Learning Components Learn anytime, anywhere Time savings Cost Efficient Learner control Disadvantages of Self-Paced on-line Bandwidth Interaction Development Cost Drop-Outs Advantages of Self-Paced on-line
