Blended Learning: A Formidable Tool To Flatten The Forgetting Curve

Speaking about the forgetting curve, can blended learning save the day? The forgetting curve has long since challenged training managers to roll out engaging training programs—in spaced intervals—to reinforce learners’ retention of knowledge, skills and thereby improve application back on the job.

On the other hand, blended learning offers an assortment of digital solutions to prop up the forgetting curve. From the good old classroom training to the current favorite of virtual training—thanks to the new normal—technology is enriching and expanding the learning mix and taking it beyond brick and motor (and digital) classrooms to learners’ fingertips.

More precisely, you have the opportunity to:

  • Use videos to replicate a Netflix-like environment
  • Use podcasts to set up your corporate Spotify
  • Create an eLibrary of micro-assets
  • Flip the classroom to make the instructor more of a guide on the side

However, the different elements that go into a learning blend should be a judicious mix based on learner demographics, the characteristics of the training, such as the difficulty of mastering it and the risk of performing related tasks incorrectly, and the duration.

This webinar will help you design a trail mix for blended learning using the "job-task" inventory matrix. Join an interactive session with polls and Q&As to explore the elements of blended learning, how they can be juxtaposed with the forgetting curve, roadmaps you can implement in your organization, and more.

During this session, you will learn:

  • What’s really blended learning?
  • How can blended solutions flatten the forgetting curve?
  • Superimposing elements on the forgetting curve
  • Challenges to consider when designing blended solutions
  • Where blended approaches work best
Blended learning is also referred to as hybrid learning or mixed-mode learning. The idea is to provide a mix of different delivery methods for a more comprehensive learning experience. It can include classroom training, virtual classrooms as well as other online formats such as video-based learning, mobile learning, and webinars.
