Blended Learning

Blended Learning - Online & Classroom Training

Blended learning combines adaptive online learning with hands-on training, integrating theory and practice into a balanced program that optimizes the effectiveness of the training. By using a blended method, organizations can take advantage of the flexibility and convenience of online training while still retaining the benefits of the face-to-face classroom experience.

Blended learning can create a positive impact at all levels of an organization, including:

  • For the leaders of an organization, blended training is a responsive, cost-effective means of training the entire company
  • For supervisors, blended learning is a practical method of ensuring consistency in content delivery in addition to facilitating hands-on classroom training
  • For workers, blended learning offers flexibility in timing and can be adapted to the individual’s learning style and their existing knowledge base

Implementing Blended Learning

Although the benefits of blended learning are clear, some organizations do encounter challenges while trying to implement a blended program. Finding the right blend of online and classroom learning to take advantage of the strengths of each environment can take time.

One of the biggest challenges often lies in identifying the best technology that combines the online experience with that of the classroom. A system built from the ground up accommodates blended learning more effectively than adapting a legacy program to suit a company’s changing needs.
