The Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation is a leader in blended learning research. They define blended learning as follows:
"The definition of blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns:
at least in part through online learning, with some element of student control over time, place, path, and/or pace;at least in part in a supervised brick and mortar location away from home;
and the modalities along each student's learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience."
