This paper describes how we at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School. (MMUBS) have adopted a blended learning approach to teaching information and communication technology (ICT) skills to our first year undergraduate students. This innovative approach has enabled us to deliver a high quality educational experience whilst, at the same time, making more effective use of traditional teaching methods. We will describe the development of blended learning at MMUBS and we will provide evidence that our approach has secured a substantial, positive impact student on learning and at the same time improved cost effectiveness.
