Reseach indicates blended learning has stronger learning outcomes

SRI's recent meta-analysis of the online learning research literature found that, on average, students in blended learning conditions have stronger learning outcomes than those receiving instruction through conventional face-to-face formats. The research does not support the conclusion that blended instruction is superior as a medium of instruction, however, because blended conditions often include additional learning time and instructional elements. A learning sciences perspective helps us make sense of these empirical findings and suggests promising avenues for further enhancements of blended learning designs. This session is presented by Barbara Means, Director for the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International. Streaming video of this session is also available.
