Using the Blended e-Learning (BeL) environment in conjunction with classroom instruction offers you, the student, a wide range of learning opportunities. You may be asked to read, work on your own or as a member of a group, complete assignments, and electronically interact with your teacher. As well, you may be asked to add to discussions, complete research and report online. When using BeL, students and teachers blend the use of e-Learning resources with daily classroom instruction.
