- Improve the quality of course design
- Redesign time, talent, and resources
- Engage and communicate with key stakeholders

Blended learning offers particular promise for helping to close the opportunity gap in rural communities by enabling students to overcome challenges with geography and limited resources. It is important to have a common understanding of the elements needed to implement blended learning and the desired impact of these programs, but the name or definition is not as important as the end result of student success.
