Blended learning is one of the most popular training solutions in organizations today. And for many reasons. But how you do know what should go where? After all, both are highly effective. So how do you come up with the perfect blend? Are there any time-tested proportions for deciding on the blend? How do you figure out what is best dealt with in a classroom and what works most effectively in the form of an online course?
There are many things to consider when coming up with the right blend – the purpose, the audience, the need for repeatability and practice, the need for live sessions, the complexity of the content being taught, the need to offer learners a self-test to let them know where they stand, the need for some kind of performance support long after the training is over, the need to offer learners the opportunity to revisit content they have learned at their convenience, etc.
Although coming up with the ideal blend sounds tricky, it is not complicated really. Check our infographic to find out which component of a blended learning program should go into the classroom and which should go online.
