This paper reports upon the success that The Open University of the United Kingdom (UKOU) has had in delivering the Cisco Exploration Curriculum, as an undergraduate course (T216), using a Blended Distance Learning Model (BDL). It discusses the importance of Supported Open Learning as a method of supporting students, and the key role of simulators, remote access tools and day schools. It is argued that a constructivist learning approach was taken when designing T216, which is demonstrated by this BDL model. BDL has proven to be an excellent way of delivering Cisco courses to adult learners, as supported by student feedback and attainment. BDL offers the Cisco Networking Academy program an opportunity to extend reach in both existing and new markets.
