Blended learning is not a new concept
Blended learning involves combining face-to-face instructions with online learning. There are many benefits, for example, the approach gives learners the flexibility of being able to access training materials on their own time, at their own pace. Here are just 3 more of the benefits to using Blended Learning…
1. Delivers An Engaging Learning Experience
First of all, a blended learning approach can deliver engaging training that your learners are sure to benefit from. When training content is presented in a variety of formats, then it is easier for information to be retained, because more attention will be focused on it.
For example, watching a video or experiencing a simulation that’s related to the topic of training keeps learner engaged and therefore ensures that content is understood, meanwhile increasing the enjoyment of the learning experience.
2. Money Saving
Blended learning can help counter the rising expense of classroom training. Any resources needed for face-to-face classroom training are reduced, thus saving money in the process. With a blended learning approach, most materials are online and easily accessible at any time on smart devices, available to download, read, and edit.
3. Enhances Training Effectiveness
Finally, complementing classroom training programs with online training is a great strategy to reinforce learning. This is because learners can retain information more effectively when learners are given opportunities to practice what they have learned. Due to the nature of the approach, learning can be spaced and repeated, meaning online quizzes can be implemented to ensure learners are retaining the knowledge, thus improving effectiveness.
Certainly going forward, an increasing number of organisations are certain to take the blended learning approach, as along with these, there are countless benefits of using this approach to facilitate optimal learning.
