Blended Learning – Advantages to a New Way of Learning
As students and teachers prepare to return to their studies and work in the coming weeks, learning as we know it may be taking on a new pattern. Blended learning is sure to become the norm for many colleges throughout the country.
Blended learning uses a mix of training strategies to deliver the best results. Combining traditional classroom training with online training, allows the beneficiaries to reap the benefits of hybrid learning listed below:
A blended learning approach provides ultimate flexibility in presenting content. Certain topics can be presented in the classroom, while other subjects may be available online. With an online component, you’ll also increase flexibility and convenience over how and when your students participate in learning.
With a well-planned blended learning strategy, you can efficiently and quickly deliver training to a broad audience. And with digital assets such as videos and recordings and eBooks, the potential for re-use is huge. You can easily help more people get up-to-speed after the initial rounds of training have passed.
Blended learning is a strategy that can be used to save money. Including more online options in your training program saves on travel and missed work. When you are hosting live events online, you eliminate student and instructor travel costs.
A well-crafted blended solution can provide a seamless transition from classroom to computer or vice-versa. You can design ways of continuing discussion themes and personalising content to a person’s specific job or interests.
- Extended reach
Creating a blended learning strategy reduces classroom teaching time. By digitizing the expertise of talented instructors or subject-matter experts, you can reach more people with high-quality content at a fraction of the cost. That frees up knowledgeable instructors to offer more classes, or create more training content, or work on other things.
- Covers all learning styles
It’s always important to take learning styles into account then designing training for adults. Effective blended learning is a “best of all worlds” solution that can help you cater to all learning styles through a variety of media and techniques.
