Editor's note
As another poll shows this week, uptake of e-learning and
blended learning is enduringly strong. Whether it's for
flexibility, economies of scale or the ability to roll out
a multi-site programme, many organisations are looking to
increase their training this way.

Today, to start a month-long focus on blended learning,
Tim Drewitt of Balanced Learning offers some advice on how
to devise a blend that suits your business needs.

In his feature Tim sets out the building blocks of
devising a programme that minimises learning time and
optimises returns from face-to-face training.
