Blended and Online Learning as a Precondition for Better Teaching Communication

Nasih Osmanović, Nasiha Osmanović


This study aims to find out what are the impacts of Blended learning on communication. Research shows that in the higher education system there are positive outcomes of communication using Blended learning techniques. According to this research, if the system is entirely online, it will never revolutionize the mindsets of students. Blended learning and online learning help the students to explore more techniques and tools for faster acquisition of knowledge. It has a positive impact on the cognitive and interpersonal skills of the students and automatically impacts positively the concept of online learning from the student’s perspective. The research showed that online learning even if it is not taken in the classroom can be a part of positive effects in communication among the students and their effectiveness and performances. Using the variety of technology in the class is improving communications skills and forcing learners to incorporate information technology and have a strong command of modern communication instruments.
