ILT-VILT and Blended Learning

In this day and age of virtual interactivity and multi-channel learning preferences, stand-alone classroom trainings or eLearning courses may not be good enough. What you need is a good blend – the right mix of classroom training and online delivery with multiple options for learners to learn and interact for an engaging learning experience.

We can help you deliver blended training with the following options:

Option 1: Virtual Instructor-Led Training or VILT
The primary training is facilitated or instructor-led.

The key highlights include:

  • Can be extended to reach a wider and geographically spread-out audience at the same time.
  • Sessions can be recorded and made available to participants as an online learning aid.
  • Supports interactions like polling questions, online questions and breakout rooms to conduct group activities.
  • Instructors can share online prep material in advance, obtain feedback quickly and track the learners’ performance easily.

Option 2: Blended approach
Here, ILT/VILT complements the online or eLearning delivery.

The key highlights include:

  • Part of the training can be done in the facilitated format and part of it is done online (the mix can vary).
  • Can provide pre and post-workshop material in an online format that is accessible to the learners.

We also offer specific models that can be used to determine how to offer blended training. They are as follows:

Model 1

Significant face-to-face, ILT training and a small component of online training.

Model 2

An even mix of face-to-face, ILT training and online training.

Model 3

Significant online learning with short and focused face-to-face, ILT training.

How we can help you

Our step-by-step guide can help you in transforming your ILT to blended approach:

Step 1: Determine why blending is required

  • What are the triggers that are prompting the need to transform the training format?
  • Are there any challenges in the existing delivery that must be offset in the new format?
  • What are the expected gains from the new format?

Step 2: Validate the impact of the new approach (to arrive at the degree of blending)

  • Would the learners align to the new delivery format?
  • Would the learners get an enhanced value?
  • Would the program mandate be met?

Step 3: Identify the required support

  • Evaluate the options for delivery including:
  • Platform to offer VILT and LMS to offer online training.
  • Instructor and learner support.

Step 4: Identify the support required to handle change management effectively.

Step 5: Review the existing content to determine its suitability to adapt to a blended delivery

  • You need to do an effective mapping of classroom-based activities and exercises to online format.
  • You also need to assess the current Assessment strategy and determine how it should be adapted to a blended delivery.

Step 6: Once these aspects are covered, you are ready to go

  • Create the Blended Training program design.
  • Create an approach plan to implement it through:
    • Pilot.
    • Take feedback.
    • Re-deploy.
  • Feedback and further improvement: After a suitable time, poll the learners and business units to determine its impact. Based on this feedback, determine if we need to recalibrate the previous blend.

What are your options and how should you select the way forward?

Typical corporate training needs and how would they map to online conversion:

  • Induction and Onboarding training.
  • Tools or Application Software training.
  • Compliance training.
