Molly Secor


The article titled “Combining the Best of Online and Face-to-Face Learning: Hybrid and Blended Learning Approach for COVID-19, Post Vaccine, & Post-Pandemic World” authored by Dr. Jitendra Singh et al., presents a research study that creatively examines the history, evolution, and development of blended learning in a variety of educational settings. The article describes the review of various models of hybrid learning and different e-learning models currently used in higher education. In addition, the article articulates a number of issues that students, faculty, schools, and institutions of higher education faced during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020. Finally, the authors examine effective strategies for integration of best practices moving forward in the pandemic trajectory. Using a fishbone analysis, challenges faced by instructors and academic institutions are examined to lay the foundation for potential solutions and strategies. A detailed Strength–Weakness–Opportunities–Threat (SWOT) analysis of blended and hybrid mediums of instruction is described. The authors conclude with an evidence-based approach from their own experience and research which can be utilized by faculty and administrators worldwide, as we enter a post-vaccine and post pandemic world.
