Hybrid Vs Blended Learning

A couple years ago, learning was limited to the classrooms. But since 2020, learning has shifted to virtual classrooms, due to the pandemic. With ease in lockdows and decrease in number of active cases, we tried to ease back into the normalcy with hybrid learning and blended learning models.

Hybrid learning and blended learning can often be mistaken for one another. Although they contain the same elements, i.e. online and in-person classes, they are quite different from each other. Here are some points that will help you distinguish between the two:

Hybrid learning is when some students attend physical classes, while others use PCs for education. The teacher or instructor uses technology like video conferencing to teach the online learners and in-class learners simultaneously.

Blended learning is when the instructor or teacher combines online and offline resources to teach the students. Some activities are done through PC learning, while others in an in-person classroom.

In hybrid learning, it depends on students to choose between PC enabled learning and in-person learning.

On the other hand, online and in-person activities are decided by the teacher in blended learning.

With hybrid learning in-person and online learners are different individuals.

While the same pupils attend both in-person and online classes in blended learning.

Even though both types of learning models use PC enabled learning and in-person learning, they are two distinct learning models. In times like these, both the learning models are quite beneficial to both students and teachers.
