Towards the Design and Implementation of a Blended Learning Framework for Student-Centredness


In the 21st century, the use of the internet and technology become essential in every facet of a life. The outbreaks of the Covid-19 pandemic, prevent direct human contact but increase the usage of digital technology for numerous services. Traditional teaching methods called also face-to-face in educational environments have changed in order to conform to a new norm that incorporates technology into all curricula, including how faculty plan and perform tuition. The use of learning management systems (LMSs), which offer technological tools for learning and teaching, is widespread among higher education institutions (HEIs) worldwide, particularly in South Africa (SA). The design and implementation of a blended learning framework for student-centeredness (BL4SC) by one of the South African rural universities are presented in this study. The design and implementation of the BL4SC by one of South Africa's rural universities are presented in this study. The paper describes integrating online learning components with other delivery techniques already in use at the university. The goal was to expand the flexible learning mode already in place, develop a learning environment that is more student-centered, and increase both staff and student participation. Furthermore, it examines some of the possible benefits of integrating online components into flexible delivery methods that heavily utilize a technologically infused strategy. These include opportunities to create students’ educational experiences and foster their collaboration as they develop and increase their independence, self-reliance, and other skills they need for lifelong learning that they may use in a variety of academic fields and across various disciplines.
