What are the Advantages of Blended Learning?
Blended Learning has several advantages over traditional in-person lecture or workshop style learning experiences. For example, Blended Learning is a great fit for teams where employees are geographically dispersed and meeting regularly in-person isn’t an affordable option. Taking the majority of training online allows learners across the globe to access the content, while also drastically cutting down the overhead costs of in-person training.
Similarly, if your team is spread out across time zones, it can be difficult to schedule an optimal time for everyone to meet either in person or in an online classroom. Offering Blended Learning solutions where learners are able to engage with content on their own time can be a great way to ensure every team member gets access to the learning they require, without inconveniencing anyone. Whether it be on a desktop at the office, on a laptop at the airport, or anywhere on a mobile device, Blended Language Learning offers learners the opportunity to balance their work-lives and personal lives along with learning.
Blended Learning can also be extremely cost-efficient. If you are looking to cut costs in the learning and development budget while still offering top-quality education, Blended Learning is an excellent option for your team. For example, blending online learning with classroom instruction allowed Ernst & Young to reduce their training costs by 35%.
