When did UMassOnline start offering blended learning programs?

January 2007, the Sloan Foundation, a national association that promotes online learning standards, awarded UMassOnline a $650,000 grant and more recently awarded a second round of funding to help expand access to the University of Massachusetts. The grant helped UMassOnline to develop, deliver, and market a new suite of online, blended programs and services.

The Sloan Foundation selected UMass for this grant as it believes that the University of Massachusetts will set the new directions, best-practices and examples of blended learning within the larger distance learning marketplace.
