Context Matters: Survey Results of Institutional Digital Learning Definitions


To advance WCET’s work on digital learning modalities, a survey was conducted in summer 2023 to gather insights on institutional definitions, policies, and their impact on students. We also conducted follow-up interviews with participating institutions to delve deeper into their policies and practices.

The survey examined terms such as online learning, hybrid learning, hyflex learning, and blended learning, analyzing agreement with key aspects, policy variations, and students’ perspectives. We aimed to understand the more practical aspects of the use of these terms, including the need for novel terms and institutional decision-making processes. Ultimately, individual institutional and student needs influence the definition of these modalities.
