A blended approach ensures that the learners are more engaged.
And since different learners have different learning styles, blending the formats is much more likely to cater to those varying needs. Which is nearly impossible with classroom training. Blended learning complements both classic (classroom) and eLearning environments and helps all types of learners in various ways.
Online learning helps solving the time issue. It allows trainees to take information home and have their own time to assimilate it without the pressure of keeping up with the rest of the class.
Quizzing and testing online allows for trainers to have more time to educate in the physical classroom environment. It gives the trainer extra time to facilitate contact with learners and answer questions, address concerns and make sure that everyone’s issues are being resolved.
And last but not least, blended learning can make learning more fun!
