Blended learning has turned out as a widely accepted educational model, combining pro’s and con’s of face2face teaching and online learning in a structured and targeted manner. While definitions of blended learning just consider it as a mix of both worlds, however this is always silently interpreted (and thus implemented) as a temporal sequence of dedicated face2face and online phases. This position paper presents the concept of immersive learning, which is adding another degree of freedom to current implementations of blended learning, and discusses first experiences with this idea. This leads to a number of questions to be tackled by further research, finally leading to what blended learning might have been intended to be.
