How do you create the right blend of learning?


I am currently researching into blended learning. I appreciate that there is no prescriptive solution but I would be interested in knowing how others have created their blend of traditional delivery and e-learning to ensure that business needs are met.

    Hello Kara

    I would be happy to share my experiences with you. My comments are based both on my experiences with my previous employer Lloyds TSB and the e learning solutions company I work for now, MMT, and their clients. Drop me an email if you would like to talk.

  5. e-learning – the blended solution
    I’ve been involved with implementing over 100 e-learning solutions throughout the UK and Europe, and all have been very different in how they approach the integration of e-learning and the classroom.

    Finding the right learning management system can be a great help, although really it’s down to you investigating the audience needs, and planning your strategy for a blended approach. Training managers do this all of the time without realising it. You don’t have to be using e-learning to say you have a blended training programme. For example, you may run introductory instructor lead session to a class of delegates, and then ask them to join a workshop. This in itself is blended learning. OK it’s loose, but you probably get the idea.

    Don’t treat e-learning as difficult or intrusive on planning your training programme. At the end of the day it is just another tool to help people learn. Also, don’t think of e-learning as a training course in itself. It’s far more than that. Given the right solution, and a supporting plan to go with it, your people can use e-learning to support them back in the workplace. Think about using it as a reference manual. It’s always up to date, and you can even have subject matter experts on hand to provide a little mentoring.

    My experience with e-learning solutions has driven me to advocate a blended solution, typically people use e-learning to help themselves build a basic level of knowledge. They can then move on to working with their colleagues for a more technical understanding of the environment they are in, either in a classroom, workshops, or team meetings. From here they move back to building additional skills through e-learning, and looking at using this ideal medium to provide them with a mentor for continued growth and support.
