March 1, 2017

Since 2011, the University of Central Florida has offered “BlendKit,” a free six-week online course for folks who want to learn more about blended learning. The 2017 edition launched on Monday, but there’s plenty of time to enroll. The first of five live webinars will be Monday, March 6 at 1:00 pm Eastern (US) time. In the meantime, you can prepare by working on orientation activities and other assignments.

The organizers know that not everyone who signs up plans to finish all components of the course. They welcome everyone from lurkers to auditors to active participants, and “completers.” Badges are used to recognize completion of different types of activity, including assessment, design, and content. All course materials are freely available on an open website called the Blended Learning Toolkit.

I have heard great things about BlendKit, so this year I decided to enroll. I’ve begun to familiarize myself with the layout of the course and so far I’m amazed with the thoroughness and attention to detail. In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing my reactions and experiences. I’m pretty confident that you would find BlendKit rewarding, too, so here’s a signup button if you want to join me:
