Blended learning is an important model of learning where large amount of knowledge and skill-based content needs to be imparted in phases and redundancies need to be avoided. I will share few examples of blended learning in this write-up.
What Is The Blended Learning All About?
Blended learning is a model, where some or major part of the training is imparted through eLearning and the rest is through classroom-training or vice-versa. Blended learning is not a new solution and has been in vogue since quite a number of years.
However, it is now increasingly being adopted by organizations to make the best use of available resources. The solution emerged from schools or the K-12 sector where experiments were conducted to teach some part of the content through digital based medium or online and the rest was conducted as classroom sessions. For obvious reasons, when it comes to corporate training, the dynamics are completely different as compared to the K-12 sector.
There were quite a few challenges with the traditional model that is face to face/classroom teaching model due to which the blended learning model was thought of as a viable solution. What are those challenges? We will look at them next.
