Blended learning is a teaching method that combines on campus teaching with digital learning activities. The distribution between campus and online activities can be balanced, or in favor of one or the other.
The aim is to utilize the strengths of both digital and non-digital teaching methods, in a way that increases overall learning. Blended learning is one of BI's focus areas in order to be a modern and digital institution.

Blended learning courses
In a blended course you need to come to class - as well as participate in activities online. The class and the online activities are planned to complement each other and are to be aligned.

In a class-based course you will need to come to class. Online activities are supplements to other activities, and the online resources are mainly used to prepare for class and for after class reflection.
