A wide range of teaching modes, tools and resources are available to the teacher and learner of languages in blended contexts: text-based, audio and video, synchronous and asynchronous, physical and electronic, internally produced within the institution for a specific course or externally published. This chapter will provide an overview of the role they might have from the viewpoint of the teacher and teacher developer, as well as the extent and nature of teacher involvement in each.
