Ozzie Logozzo, a LERN member and association executive head of the Ontario Real Estate College in Toronto, Canada, told LERN recently, “We offer courses via correspondence, classroom and online and have done so since 1997. We are currently mapping out a fourth delivery methodology for elite students who can handle blended learning in a virtual classroom. We anticipate that we will be able to pilot this product by year's end."
A “blended” course, sometimes called hybrid or mixed, is a course that has in-person class meetings, and in between those meetings students get into an online classroom and interact with a variety of online features. Often blended courses involve fewer face-to-face (F2F) class meetings. Research shows students learn more in blended courses than either in totally F2F or totally online courses.
