There are many challenges associated with solely using “real life” training. Simply being lectured at can be boring and less engaging. In today’s day and age, everything is revolved around the digital world and in-person classes have become less accessible. Combining e-learning with traditional face-to-face learning in a way where they compliment each other is the most beneficial learning method in today's generation.
What is Blended Learning?
Blended learning is a teaching method that combines two types of coaching methods, specifically real life training and digital learning. Blended learning allows for the human aspect of learning while also giving the student control of their training during the online education portion. It is especially beneficial for students who can collaborate in a classroom setting but can also work independently digitally. It offers flexibility for the students while exposing them to many different resources and teaching styles as well.
Countless Benefits of Blended Learning
Changing over to a hybrid learning method, combining in person and e-learning, has many more benefits.
- Increases Engagement Rates
Engagement rates will increase as students need to take ownership of their training and be responsible for keeping track of their online course work while attending in person sessions. Also, students are more engaged when they receive feedback. With blended learning, students receive constant feedback from their trainers both in person and online.
- Learn at Your Own Pace
Blended learning is a much more flexible learning process. It allows students to take the materials from the in person sessions and utilize it at their own pace online. Trainers can customize the speed of the training for their students’ comfort.
- More Personalized Learning
Blended learning allows for the student to set their own learning goals and then develop them on their own terms.
- Easier to Track Individual Progress
This system allows for a more accurate progress tracker as most online platforms visualize for the student where they are in their training allowing for more insight on their development.
- Extend the Reach of your Training
Training can now be more attainable with blended learning as there are so many more outlets to access your learning and facilitators.
