“Blended learning” is shorthand for a transformed education system in which teacher-led instruction is blended with online learning in an integrated fashion. It allows education to be more personalized—instructors can engage and motivate each student to progress at his or her own pace, emphasizing their individual learning styles and interests. Talented students who quickly master the required standards can sprint ahead, while those having difficulty are provided the individualized help they need.
