Whereas blended learning is a new aspect in education, a number of institutions and students themselves have quickly embraced it.

Blended learning is a type of education that combines traditional/face-to-face learning and that of online.

He explains that this is because with the face-to-face or traditional learning environment, one has to come in for a specific time, but for online learning, they can always catch up with everything at any given time.

Mukasa notes that blended learning also helps prepare students for the future.
