Blended Learning, briefly stated, is the well-thought-out combination of complementary and mutually reinforcing online and face-to-face activities, which can lead to an increase in learning efficiency and student motivation. At the same time, Blended Learning can also bring about cost reductions. The successful implementation of Blended Learning requires craftsmanship when it comes to facilitating interactions between management, teachers and students.
Blended Learning is particularly suitable for entrepreneurship education with its emphasis on entrepreneurs’ need for autonomy, and where the construction of knowledge is highly context-dependent.
