Blended Learning: Future of Indian Education
Dr. Mala Dixit
As the name suggests, blended learning is the technique where face-to-face and electronic and media methods are mixed together. The debate around the quality of higher education in India has been gaining momentum which lays emphasis on skill development, employability and digitisation of the education process. While many educators have adopted this unique form of learning, one hopes that in a decade’s time, blended learning becomes the norm rather than the exception. Transitioning from the traditional classroom method of teaching to newer methods requires immense effort from teachers. Teachers often try to supplement their teaching in the classroom with digital content. Blended learning is a formal educational programme that combines classroom teaching with computer based/online training. This method ensures multichannel teaching which brings in the best of classroom teaching and digital content. Students can access digital content at home and they are encouraged to watch educational videos, play games and complete assignments in the classroom.
The techniques rely on technologies such as Google apps, Android and iOS devices, video, learning management systems (LMSs), and open-source tools such as Word Press to promote sharing and collaboration.
