How Can We Help?
Blended Training solutions can be rendered in multiple ways, based on the nature of training.
Broadly, they map to:
Virtual Instructor-Led Training
Here, the training is facilitated by an instructor (just like in ILT) but a virtual platform is used to connect learners who can be geographically spread out. The session integrates many online aspects like polling questions, online questions, and breakout rooms to conduct group activities. These sessions can be recorded and made available to participants as an online learning aid. The instructor can provide pre-workshop material in an online format that is accessible to the learners. Online delivery also enables instructors to obtain feedback quickly. Since the assessments are online, the results can be shared quickly and more significantly; this data can be used to track the learners’ performance and determine the training impact.
NOTE: In this case, the primary training is facilitated or instructor-led; and eLearning or online training supplements it.
A blended approach where
ILT/VILT complements the online or eLearning delivery
Certain training needs cannot be mapped readily to pure ILT or pure eLearning formats. In fact, they need both components. A good example is an Induction and Onboarding program where significant parts of the training can be offered in a self-paced, eLearning format. However, to successfully induct and onboard an employee, several components of this program need face-to-face sessions. In fact, some sessions will greatly benefit from group activities.
NOTE: In this case, ILT and eLearning-based training complement each other.
That’s not all!
While Blended Training has its significant advantages, a lot depends on the approach that you use to ‘blend’ the face-to-face or ILT components with online training (eLearning or mLearning).
At EI Design, we have created three models that we use to determine how you should blend the two components. Our Blended Training design approaches would map to one of the following:
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.
Highlights of Our Approach
As a top Blended Learning company, our strength lies in creating a “successful learning strategy” that features learning experiences that are:
These learning experiences will:
1. Create sticky learning.
2. Facilitate the application of learning.
3. Provide room for practice and proficiency gain.
4. Reinforcement to ensure the Forgetting Curve does not step in.
5. Influence or trigger behavioral change.
