We believe that blended learning is an instructional methodology that leverages technology to provide a more personalized approach to learning, giving students control over the time, place, path and pace of their learning.

Blended learning allows adaptive, collaborative learning and transforms the role of the teacher from a disseminator of knowledge to a facilitator. Therefore, a combination of traditional and on-line learning in particular or e-learning in general creates a more integrated approach for both instructors and learners.
