Alshahrani, Saeed and Ward, Rupert (2014) Shifting from traditional approaches of teaching to a blended learning approach; challenges and possible solutions. In: 7th Saudi Students Conference-UK, 1st-2nd February 2014, Edinburgh, UK.

The transfer from traditional methods of education to Blended Learning Approach has been essential and it has been adapted widely in universities around the world. The aim of this paper is to recommend a technique that can help to shift from traditional approaches to learning to the BLA approach. The recommendations are based on the analysis of previous studies that highlighted the challenges of BLA and recommended solutions. The key point in this research is that the recommendations do not require the whole education system to be changed. It focuses on aspects that need to be altered, and how. A documentary method of research was used to analyse data from the results of existing research. The recommendations provided are based on analysing major and common obstacles that face BLA. The studies that were analysed were selected from Saudi Arabia only as an Asian country.
