Clive Shepherd is an authority on technology-assisted learning and communication. In this session he'll describe how the new blended learning is different. It takes advantage of different social contexts for learning (self-directed, one-to-one, group) as well as different learning media (online, offline, face-to-face).

It also seamlessly crosses formal and informal boundaries, to harness the power of social media, rapid and mobile content to supplement formal approaches and deliver just-in-time performance support. This is blended learning that goes well beyond the old approach of simply adding e-learning to a classroom course.
