Title: BLENDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION

Authors: EKEMINI T. AKPAN

Topic: Education

Abstract:

Blended learning (face-to-face plus online learning) is now part of the learning landscape in Higher Education, not just for campus-based courses but also for courses designed for students studying at a distance (Distance Education). This paper focuses on exploring blended learning as an approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics in Higher Education. Its provide insight and understanding of current and future trends regarding how conventional face-to-face instruction in mathematics is influenced by web-based/computer-supported learning. Practical pedagogical issues related to mathematics and blended learning in Higher Education are also discussed. The researcher recommends that higher institutions could utilize blended learning environment such as WebCT in the teaching and learning of mathematics in Higher Education.

    The article is good it talks about the blended learning but i could see that students in the developing countries will fine it very difficult to implement this type of approach in learning. Again,since some learners see mathematics as a difficult subject, if mathematics teaching is done in this approach most students will run away from doing mathematics. Even though the article is interesting it needs a more discussions,education,materials,technologies etc before it can be implemented.
