Designing Blended Learning Solutions That Work

With digital natives increasingly becoming the majority at most workplaces today, classroom training alone is no longer sufficient to meet corporate training needs. The pandemic has added another dimension, making online learning a trend that is here to stay – even though many organizations are getting their employees back into the office.

Today’s learners demand the flexibility of anytime, anywhere learning on their preferred devices. They also have a voracious appetite for videos, and want to learn in their flow of work. Ultimately, they expect training that is non-intrusive, timely, and focused.

The best way organizations can offer holistic training programs in this dynamic environment is through blended learning.

The various formats that are suitable for a blend – eLearning, microlearning, VILTs, videos, mobile learning, performance support tools – offer numerous advantages, including:

  • Flexible, self-paced learning – through eLearning.
  • Human interaction without the logistics of the classroom – through VILT.
  • Bite-sized, on-demand learning – through microlearning.
  • Flexible digital assets that can cover different training needs.

Are you thinking that the theory sounds good, but that designing a blended learning solution is too challenging? Then don’t miss this webinar! CommLab India will share a suggested design path based on high-level considerations! We will also explore popular training formats and sample solutions that showcase blended learning in action!

Last, but not least, you'll get a sneak preview into the blended learning tool CommLab India offers their customers. The easy-to-use tool offers a customized, unique blended roadmap for each training need – a mix of classroom/VILT, eLearning, and performance support job-aids.

We all operate in a “results-oriented” environment. The organizations we support exist to generate some form of results, and are made up of individuals – people. And individual performance drives organizational performance. Therefore, our ongoing challenge is to find the most efficient way to help those people excel in their performance.
