Blended learning – varied learning methods and effective knowledge transfer

How can you make sure that your employees love learning and that taught content is communicated as effectively as possible? ILT Solutions’ blended learning strategy uses a combination of methods tailored to your company and the people who work there, ensuring learners are highly motivated and knowledge is absorbed long-term. Our support for your business stretches from the initial idea right through to the evaluation of the training programme.

Harness the synergies that come from combining classic classroom instruction with modern e-learning technology. With blended learning (integrated learning), the advantages of both methods are increased and their disadvantages minimised. This results in a far greater transfer of knowledge than is possible when using only one method.

Definition: What is blended learning?

Blended learning (also: integrated learning) is a training concept that deploys a mixture (blend) of various training methods. The combination of classroom training with e-learning elements is the variant that is used most frequently. When compiling a blended learning concept, it is necessary to adjust classroom training phases with self-studying units in a meaningful way. The following technologies and teaching methods can be used for integrated learning:

The advantages of blended learning

Through the blend of methods, blended learning creates synergies out of the advantages of the individual categories of classroom training and e-learning. A blended learning strategy combines the advantages of classroom training, such as:

  • Direct communication with the trainer
  • Team- and group exercises
  • Instantaneous communication with peers
  • Great variety of didactical methods
  • Feeling of team spirit
  • Training of social competencies
  • Accepted training method

with the advantages of e-learning, such as:

  • Independence of time and location
  • Synchronous content
  • Use of various media formats possible
  • Automatic reporting of learning success
  • Reduction of training expenses
  • Individual talent management
  • Standardised quality
  • Multilingualism
  • Interactivity

blended learning advantages

A part of the disadvantages of both disciplines are eliminated in the combination: if a learner misses a classroom training, it is possible for him to study the learning matter online. The classroom lessons create a feeling of team spirit that could not exist in e-learning courses only. Furthermore, the variety of learning methods has something for every type of learner, thus the average training success is increased.

Blended learning methods

The main criterion for a blended learning concept is the mixing of various learning methods. Any of the methods and technologies for classroom instruction and e-learning may be included. And the methods which suit a particular curriculum are determined based on the training purpose and target group. The correct mix of self-study phases, seminar instruction and revision phases ensures an enduring learning experience incorporating the most important learning delivery channels. Via a top-level learning platform (learning management system), learners can access e-learning courses, obtain further training material, and communicate with other learners or tutors.
