Mixed educational method that combines face-to-face learning with online learning ( aka e-learning ) .
The learner can physically attend a class while accessing online digital resources before , during , or after the course .
If some face-to-face training sessions are not physically but through a videoconferencing system, then we talk about “Overblended learning” .
The advantages of the method are numerous :
- the learner can access shared knowledge databases at a lower cost and thus save money on the purchase of certain educational resources , such as books or booklets
- trainers can create customized courses tailored to the learners’ profile
