Leverage your LMS for blended learning success

A blended learning approach is a great way to create flexible, effective learning – and your LMS should be a key consideration in the design of your program. In this blog, we’re going to look at the benefits you should leverage to get the best results from your investment.

The concept of blending learning has evolved. For many, blended learning was traditionally a mix of face-to-face and online training. But now it’s much, much more.

These days, we recognise blended learning as a design tool to create rich learning experiences by harnessing:

  • a broad media mix – such as videos, animations, audio and face-to-face training
  • the latest technology – so that content that can be viewed anytime, anywhere
  • non-linear and continuous learning – instead of static one-off learning events
  • social learning – so users can learn from each other and collaborate

Your LMS can be the hub from which all these elements seamlessly blend together to create an effective learning solution.

How mobile devices can transform your learning

Knowledge-building on the go and improved retention are a couple of the big benefits mobile devices can bring to your learning. In this blog, we’ll touch upon some of the sectors in which mobile learning is revolutionizing training, and highlight a few of the great advantages it gives you and your team.

At their worst, mobile devices distract us from work and take the blame for shortening attention spans [1]. At their best, they dramatically enhance the way we work and make almost all aspects of training easier.

Used wisely, mobile devices are a powerful tools, whether you want to improve collaboration in the creation of eLearning courses or give learners just-in-time compliance information on the other side of the world.
