Blended Learning for Corporate Training Programs
Training isn't one-size-fits-all, a comprehensive blended learning program will reach all of your learners for the most impact.
A common learning and development goal is to create an engaging program, which means instructional designers always aim for activity-rich, visually appealing initiatives that are aligned with their learning objectives. A blended learning program ensures you’re taking a comprehensive approach to keeping your employees engaged and educated.

What is Blended Learning?Blended Learning is a concept that brings together traditional and digital learning techniques to create a fully comprehensive program. It’s the best of both worlds, both synchronous and asynchronous styles and tools that can be combined to create a training program that works for everyone. Some popular tools used for personalized learning programs include:
- eLearning Modules
- Discussion Boards and Forums
- Augmented Reality
- Online File Hosting
- Gamification Programs
- Virtual Reality
- Video Conferencing (Skype, Zoom, etc.)
- Video Learning
- Management Tools (Basecamp, Asana, etc.)
Benefits of Blended Learning in Workplace TrainingBlended Learning has become popular with learning and development because people learn differently; some people may want to engage face-to-face with others, while some may want to take their time alone. Here are some other benefits to corporate blended learning programs:
- Convenience for Employees – By utilizing blended learning, you can have your learners complete training tasks on their own, through eLearning or video learning, and cut down the amount of time off the job for training.
- Increased Engagement – You can entice your learners to engage more in your program by catering to their learning language, a learner that doesn’t want to participate in role-play at a seminar may be comfortable doing online activities to practice the curriculum.
- Personalized Learning Opportunities– When you have different modalities lined up, you can create a more personalized learning program, whether you assign eLearning modules based on departments or give options for online vs. instructor-led seminars.
