While the term “blended learning” has recently become a new buzzword, the actual concept or practice has been around for several years. In today’s economic uncertainty, one of the biggest challenges companies probably facing is how to provide their workforce with training opportunities to help them to develop their skills and prepare the them for advancement. Developing and implementing a blended learning approach to a training programs gives the organization the ability to do more with less, while building a higher performing organization and giving the workforce the skills they need to grow and advance in their careers.
When we talk about ‘the blend’, we no longer simply mean a mix of traditional e-learning and classroom training and the concept of the standalone ‘course’ is arguably redundant. Today, the term blended learning means combining two or more approaches to enhance learning and development, using face-to-face learning methods (on-the-job training, instructor-led classroom training, etc.) and some variation of online/virtual learning (webinars, live e-learning [virtual classrooms], web-based learning modules, etc.). There are several different ways to enhance your workforce’s learning experience, and the following reasons outline why blended learning, when used properly, is one of the most effective ways to train and develop your workforce, while improving your organization’s overall performance.
