Welcome to the Blended Learning course. It was designed as part of the self-paced online Customized Learning Series! [Register Here if you have not done so already.] The current facilitator is Lori Goldade, For any additional questions, please contact Graduate Credit Coordinator, Kim Coronado at  

This module uses the eBook Blended-Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools as our main text, as well as some articles and videos.  I will be assigning only certain pages and videos from the eBook. (Reading the entire eBook and watching all videos within is your option.)

You will be asked to review several videos from the book above.  The premium content access to the videos can be found here.  Please bookmark this page as you will refer to the videos throughout this course often.

The course incorporates four phases to help you implement a Blended Learning environment in your classroom. What is Blended Learning, what could it mean for you, and how can you move to a Blended Learning environment in your classroom? A unit on how to assess in the Blended Learning classroom is also included in this course.
