A combination of face-to-face instruction and online training, otherwise known as blended learning, is the most effective form of education. This is according to Alex Williams, a course leader at Buckinghamshire New University who has pointed out the benefits of using online resources to aid classroom study. He argued in a post for Digital Arts Online that face-to-face time with a lecturer should be spent taking part in workshops and receiving personal feedback, while the internet is great for catching up on missed lectures and doing homework. “The beauty of an online lecture is if you don’t get it the first time, you just watch it again. In fact, you keep watching it until you do get it,” Mr Williams said.
