Blended Learning: Augment Learning Success.
“Think Big but Start Small” - Today a sea of opportunities presents itself in the form of Blended Learning, so it’s best to wet your feet in the water rather than jumping in and drowning.
Blended Learning is a phenomenal concept where face to face learning method is combined with technology-based, eLearning methods.
It has emerged as one of the most promising approaches to teaching and learning. Where the aim is to assimilate traditional learning with innovative means, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS) and e-learning, to create a new-fangled learning setting to enrich the learning experience and enhance learning effectiveness.
Some of the benefits of Blended Learning are:
Ø One of the key benefits of blended learning is the ability to create an online resource within your LMS that participants can refer to both pre and post training sessions.
Ø Instructors/Administrators can upload quizzes, assessments, courses and save reports online making it a central repository.
Ø During classroom training sessions, learning can be enhanced by using multimedia content or App/computer-based exercises.
Ø Online collaboration, in the form of Micro-Learning concepts, can encourage learners to reinforce learning long after the training session has taken place with the instructor acting as a mediator.
Ø Participants can prepare for classroom training sessions by completing online learning activities. The eLearning sections introduce the content that will be discussed in the classroom.
Ø Post training activities could include reference reading, watching videos or answering a post-course questionnaire to assess the learner’s abilities.
Ø Instructors can analyze reports on the content completed, for example, the results of the pre-course questionnaire, to identify areas that need to be focused on during the classroom-based training sessions.
Ø Instructors have the ability to personalize the course content to meet the learner’s needs.
It’s imperative that the Instructor ensures learning objectives are met using the Blended Learning method and not just use it for the sake of it. If learning objectives are not met, then you may need to rethink your approach. Always list your learning goals prior to identifying the course or tasks that need to be undertaken to achieve each goal and how each goal could be achieved in an online and/or offline learning setting to enhance the learning experience for your learners.
