This chapter introduces blended learning practices in ICT-facilitated education for supporting adult learners in different contexts. The concept of blended learning is introduced with a thorough discussion of the way the term is defined in the literature about the field and also reviews the conceptual underpinnings and frameworks reported in a wide view of the international literature about blended learning, and begins a comphrensive discussion of the field to date. It reviews literature about blended learning in relation to the three sections of the book and discusses the development of ICT-based blended learning in its different contexts and its role in supporting adult learners providing a rationale for the research-based chapters that follow.
