Abstract: In New Zealand, students are increasingly taking subjects in multiple formats from multiple providers. This paper reports on 12 students’ experiences of this blended learning in one region. Thematic analyses of the interview transcripts identified a number of key findings. While students would have preferred a traditional style of learning, they were generally successful at managing this blended learning, gaining in learning skills as they did so. It appears that a blended learning approach is a viable alternative for schools for unable to provide students with personalised learning experiences within their programmes.
