Methods for Blended Learning

Margaret Driscoll of IBM write a great article on examples of various methods for blended learning:

Here's the list, see the article for details:

1. Put the assessment online.
2. Follow up with a community of practice.
3. Make reference materials available.
4. Deliver pre-work online.
5. Provide online office hours.
6. Use mentoring/coaching as a tool.
7. Provide job-aids.
8. Access experts.
9. Create a "lifeline".
10. Maximize e-mail and messaging.

I always say that if you teach online the same way you teach face-to-face, then you're not really teaching online. How does your style change when you tech online?
