With the rapid rate of innovation in software engineering, teaching and learning of new technologies have become challenging issues. The provision of appropriate education is a key prerequisite for benefiting from new technologies. Experience shows that typical classroom education is not as effective and efficient as it could be, therefore, e-learning approaches are becoming more and more popular. However, typical e-learning suffers from a lack of social communication and control over the progress of learning. This paper describes a blended learning approach based on industrial and academic experience in the area of objecttechnology, which mixes traditional classroom education with e-learning. Although both approaches have their strengths and weaknesses, the synergy effects clearly outperform the isolated benefits of the single approaches on business, content, and quality level.
