Online and Blended Learning – With changes in technology as well as teaching and learning, the new field of Online and Blended Learning is currently developing. If we truly want to meet the needs of students and individualize learning for them, students need access to different types of learning. With the new technologies in the form of Learning Management Systems (LMS), learning can be delivered to students any time, any place and at any pace. In addition, the new online media can be a patient teacher.
