What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is an educational model that combines traditional face-to-face/distance classroom methods with online delivery and participation; and an element of student control over time, place, path, and pace. Additional resources and information about the BlendEd Pilot are found here.

BlendEd—a statewide initiative with these components:
* Learning Object Repository (LOR)
* Learning Management System (LMS)
* Federated Directory System (single sign-on)
* Statewide Professional Development System (PD)
* Evaluation Components

The BlendED initiative works in harmony with the other two statewide projects, ADVISER Dashboard and Teacher Principal Evaluations, and all are supported by the Educational Service Units, Nebraska Department of Education, and school administrators statewide.
