Blended Learning 2.0: Adopting The Next Gen Blended Learning Model For The Digital Workplace

This eBook provides insights, tips, and strategies on Blended Learning 2.0 that you can use to maximize the impact of your virtual training transformation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the workplace dynamics, and we are seeing the “new normal” of remote operations. This has led to the need of a rapid Virtual Training Transformation.

As organizations undertake this transformation, a common concern that L&D teams have is whether the Virtual Training can create the same value and impact as their existing ILT sessions. For now, since most of the training will be consumed virtually, they also need cues on how to engage remote learners.

To match today’s workplace dynamics (remote operations), the answer lies in adopting the next gen approach – Blended Learning 2.0 or the Blended 2.0 mode. A median offering of the two modes, VILT sessions with Self-paced Online Learning, Blended Learning 2.0 is emerging as the preferred and optimal mode for Virtual Training.

Designed as a micro-guide, my eBook provides the insights, tips, and strategies on Blended Learning 2.0 that you can use to maximize the impact of your Virtual Training Transformation.
