If you subscribe to the Learning Thursday blog series, you may have figured out from a recent article that I like blended learning.  Which I do!  Blending learning allows us to deliver an experience that is tailored to students’ learning styles and preferences.

I’ll facilitate a free virtual session about blended learning on April 2 at 9AM Pacific.  You can register with our host, eLearning Industry.  The session description is below.

If you just can’t get enough of this topic, come to my keynote session at ATD’s New England Area Conference on March 29.  We’d love to see you!

Convert Classroom Training To Blended Learning Using Your Creativity & Adobe Technology

Blended learning is a common buzz phrase in L&D, and it’s one that deserves attention. Using a blended learning approach means providing course content in a variety of formats – including videos, games, virtual reality (VR) activities, basic documents, and eLearning courses! You may mix and match many delivery formats in order to create a learning environment that is engaging and cost-effective.

Blended learning courses often include classroom or virtual classroom training experiences. But other content is used to augment and enhance the classroom. You may even deliver the same course content in multiple delivery formats so learners can choose how they want to learn. Blended learning gives L&D professionals the flexibility to use every type of course content in order to best serve the learner’s needs.

Katrina Marie Baker, Senior Learning Evangelist at Adobe, will provide food for thought on the following points:

  • Benefits of blended learning as they relate to the learner and organization
  • A cost comparison of 100% instructor-led training (ILT) versus blended learning
  • How to incorporate classroom experiences with other types of course content to engage learners
  • Ways learning technology can add value and make it easier to develop and deliver blended learning
  • Understand how the Fluidic player can help you leverage fully blended courses in your training programs

Group discussion will take place throughout the session.

As you can read in my blog posts, I used blended learning a lot in university college, before I knew the ‘term’.  Both for flipped classes and project-based learning, found the combination to be very efficient for increasing student’s engagement and retention.

woooo very interesting, i’m currently designing Blended learning courses for some customers, this is a news for us, because customers rarely choose Blended learning, they prefer only classroom or only elearning! In my opinion in Italy, unfortunately, the customers choose is the consequence of idea that “elearning is the best choice because it’s less expensive and more reusable”, but rarely they observe quality, dynamic of learning, mechanics of interaction and, generally, every aspect of instructional design…

I, personally, always design and “drive” my blended learning projects, using multimedia and interactions, offered from authoring tools, to recall the most important concepts and create smart pills to deliver periodically, with a view to life long learning and knowledge retention. Also, to create small interactions about specific information and/or know how and/or skill with which students be able to learning by doing and transfer it in operative skills, acting on the memory and, consequently, in according to effective learning.
