As a student currently in an online degree program, I have found blended learning to be very effective. Although, I have had to sort of create that learning experience for myself. As part of my daily school routine, I read the articles provided professors. Following that, I attempt to find video clips, multimedia, etc to help enhance the points and to obtain informational reinforcement. I typically use free online resources like CourseWorld.org, Google Video, etc to find relevant videos. Being able to listen to similar information presented in my weekly readings helps reinforce things for me. I hope that more professors begin to phase this type of learning into their teaching styles because I find it very helpful.
