For more detailed information on the study; specifics of the six case studies; further recommendations; and additional resources, such as a printable institutional self-evaluation checklist based on the Blended Learning Adoption Framework [located at the bottom of the study] click here.
And though it’s K-12 oriented, this Blended Learning Implementation Guide video produced by Digital Learning Now (DLN) can also serve as a stepping-step to institutional implementation.
