A website project is developed providing tools for the flipped classroom and blended learning, with features and functionality integrating mastery learning and inductive learning strategies. Supporting research is provided through the lenses of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. The website, thelearningblender.com, provides teachers a way of providing lessons on video, which cannot be skipped or fast forwarded, while periodically checking for understanding. Based on these checks for understanding, the website provides functionality to redirect students to different parts of a lesson, so they can focus on one topic or concept until understanding is achieved. It is assumed that the goal of some students is to get their assignments done as fast as possible, as easily as possible. The intention of the websites presentation of lessons is to make the quickest, easiest way of getting the assignment done, is by focusing and paying attention. Features are also provided to set up prerequisite lessons, and automatic instructor checkpoints, to automate inductive learning projects, and allow students to pursue projects of many kinds while achieving the same learning outcomes. Tools are integrated with the website to allow the teacher to easily keep track of all of the student's progress.
