BLESS - Blended Learning Systems Structure model

Name of the Theoretical Framework: Blended Learning Systems Structure (BLESS)

Brief description: A generic model that was conceived to support research and practice in technology enhanced (blended) learning. The model is based on the design pattern approach in that it suggests that design patterns as descriptions of good practice can be used to mediate the reuse and implementation of successful learning scenarios with the use of appropriate learning technology.

This mediation is achieved in both directions by providing a layered model that has learning theory as the top-most layer and learning technology at the bottom-most layer. The layers between serve with guidance for decomposing scenarios into reusable patterns on the one hand and composing learning technology support for given scenarios on the other hand.
