How Do You Design Effective Blended Learning Programs?

Analysts and industry leaders alike are all talking about blended learning and the benefits of using that approach to build a learning program. According to a study by Bersin & Associates, “more than half of all organizations now blend off-the-shelf content with custom content, and more than a third blend off-the-shelf content with live, online virtual classroom events.”

Blended learning is not just substituting in-person training with e-learning.  It’s about creating an integrated approach, leveraging several types of assets together to accommodate different learning styles and preferences. Beyond offering a variety of assets, blended learning needs to include support and guidance for each component.

Does putting together a blended learning program seem overwhelming? How do you know when to use instructor led training as opposed to an e-learning course? Where do books, mentoring, assessments and practice fit in? On December 14, join the SkillSoft webinar on Blended Learning: Critical Design Decisions, where Sally Hovis, Vice President of Learning Design at SkillSoft, will present key points to consider when developing a blended learning program.

In this webinar, you will learn about major blended learning design decisions, such as:

  • What blended “model” you should use
  • How content scope impacts program design: contained and focused, or broad and comprehensive
  • How design for individual learners differs from cohort/group design
  • Which content assets and delivery options to use

All webinar attendees will receive a copy of our latest Learning Guide designed to help you put the ideas presented in the webinar into action. Click here to register today!
