Abstract: Blended learning, an educational approach which integrates traditional and online learning, has the potential not only to deliver a course in a useful way but also create an effective learning environment. The inclusion of technology into classroom instruction provides easy accessibility to a wide variety of resources, flexibility, pedagogical effectiveness, learner autonomy, stress-free learning environment, engagement with course contents, immediate feedback, self-evaluation and more time to interact with learners. Through combining online materials and traditional classroom instruction, blended learning can facilitate learning and help achieving educational goals. This paper explores the benefits of blended learning to help learners promote learning outcomes.
