  1. Thanks for the post. This is all truth – we live in an era of technology and it seems to be spreading on each of our lives’ aspects including education. Blended learning and e-learning are the directions we’re heading towards weather we want to or not. One day they’ll become standards and the ‘one day’ will come soon.
