Check out my Education Week Teacher column on blended learning.
“Blended Learning” has become sort of an education “buzzword.” What, exactly, is it?

Hi Larry. I’ve started using Telegram – Telegram.org to create blended learning. It’s great for creating ad hoc courses and managing student engagement. It can even double up as a back channel during live classes. You can also do live webinars with screen sharing from the desktop app and record them (with no time limitations) and it’s free.
