'Blended learning,' is a buzz phrase in the world of training and education, but what exactly is it, how can it help, and how does it relate to e-learning? Is it right for your organization, and how can you implement it? This book answers all of these questions and more.
Blended learning is a workable solution in education and training, allowing trainers and staff developers to integrate online learning with a broad range of more traditional learning techniques. Demonstrating how old and new methods of improving staff performance and learning can work seamlessly together to give better results, Kaye Thorne shows how the concept of blended learning can be applied effectively to help you take the first steps towards developing a blended training programme. Case studies from a variety of organizations, including Rolls-Royce and Avis as well as smaller businesses, illustrate what is emerging as the new training of the future, ideal for any business considering developing a programme for online distance learning.
