Here's another addition to our weekly e-learning / m-learning glossary: 'Blended Learning.'
Blended learning is another term commonly used in the e-learning circles. The term blended learning came from applying different approaches in order to get more effective results. These approaches usually refer to e-learning, face-to-face training, group work, and a synthesis project - usually in that order.
As you can see, blended learning doesn't only limit learning through one approach (instructor-led, classroom learning), but utilizes different approaches, media, and technology, to reach learning objectives.
With that in mind, the benefits of blended learning include: cost-effectiveness, more time allotted to apply the new skills, and of course, more impact, and better retention for the learner.
Here's a short video from our friends over at Easyfilms and ThinkResults explaining how you and your organization can benefit from blended learning:
