Which Blended Learning group are you in?


Regarding blended learning I've observed that adult basic skills (including ESOL/ESL, and Adult Secondary Education and Transition) teachers fall into one of these four groups or categories:

1) They don't use any form of blended learning.

2) Their students use a commercial/proprietary learning management system or content management system.

3) They use an online shell (a website, an online file storage system such as LiveBinders, Dropbox, Schoology, EdModo, Pinterest, etc. to upload their own content, or they find other free learning resources, including Open Education Resources (OERs) that they upload. This content is usually carefully chosen to meet learners' needs, or sometimes to integrate well as supplementary to the existing well-developed face-to-face curriculum.

4) They combine 2) and 3)

What category do you fit in, and why do you think so? Or don't you fit any of these -- and why not?
