MIT defines it as: “…structured opportunities to learn, which use more than one learning or training method, inside or outside the classroom. This definition includes different learning or instructional methods (lecture, discussion, guided practice, reading, games, case study, simulation), different delivery methods (live classroom or computer mediated), different scheduling (synchronous or asynchronous) and different levels of guidance (individual, instructor or expert led, or group/social learning).”
Simply put, blended learning blends instructor-led training with online technology. It brings the best of both worlds together. By optimizing face-to-face contact, employees gain the accessibility and engagement of the training instructor and the ease and flexibility of the online learning environment. With our innovative digital learning solutions, you can blend an edOpp onsite course with mobile learning, employee training videos, or with your current online course platform.
Why Blended Learning?
It is challenging for one single training format to meet the complex learning needs of your organization. Therefore, blended learning offers a fuller learning experience. Since blended learning combines a variety of training formats, it can lead to improved employee performance while adding flexibility and reducing costs.
Blended learning has been proven to be highly effective in improving knowledge and skills in the workplace, building employee engagement, increasing on-the-job training opportunities, and increasing employee morale and loyalty.
Blended learning is ideal for complimenting your current edOpp onsite courses and extending the learning experience. It provides the speed, scale, and accessibility of online delivery with the impact and personalization of more traditional delivery methods.
Will a Blended Learning Solution Work for Your Organization?
The requirements of an organization’s workforce should dictate the style and type of training they receive. We help you achieve the right blend of training to enable performance improvement across your organization. As you consider our blended learning solution, ask yourself:
- Is in-person interaction more critical than presenting the information alone?
- Will the content raise questions that are best dealt with by an instructor?
- Can the e-learner connect the content with their own experiences / work roles on their own or does that require a level of interaction that goes beyond the e-Learning modality?
- Would an in-person course or other facilitated training experience reinforce the content more effectively or not?
