Blended learning is a combination (or blend) of face-to-face and online learning.
TDSB classroom teachers can now create online learning spaces with their face-to-face classes using the same provincial virtual Learning Environment (vLE) that e-Learning teachers and students access.
Desire2Learn (D2L) is the platform for bringing e-Learning Ontario's curriculum content and activities into our bricks-and-mortar schools.

In a nutshell...
Blended learning combines the best features of online and in-person learning. Students and their teacher can transition between learning modes to capitalize on learning resources that best fit each learning goal.
