Blended learning is an integration of online learning experiences with classroom learning experiences. It benefits from the strengths of both face-to-face and online interactions.

2Authentic assessment of learning is an approach to assessment which measures students' learning performance in a real life context. The authentic assessment tasks designed should enable students to apply knowledge and skills learnt into a real life situation or a simulated real life situation. This is different from traditional assessment, such as multiple- choice, fill-in-the-blank and true or false questions, which tends to limit the assessment of students' learning to lower order thinking skills (such as memorization recall, basic explanation and well-defined application).
