Yes you can! E-learning has to be part of the overall learning and development strategy, not a standalone solution. It is often seen only as a solution to reduced budgets and a cost cutting exercise – yet it has many positive advantages that improve your return of investment and increase the availability of on demand training, and not just a way to reduce classroom costs. E-learning can be used in a blended approach in a number of ways.
1. It can be used to ensure everyone attending a classroom event has the same level of knowledge about a subject, especially where you have policies, procedures or legislation to train around.
2. You can make more impact with your classroom time, helping your delegates by facilitating on skills development, sharing case studies or engaging in group discussions.
3. After your classroom event you can use e-learning and your LMS if you have one to create a range of post course activities, such as assessments and evaluations, to measure the impact of the course, or facilitate further discussion. At Learning Pool we believe in blended learning so we provide Classroom Connect to help our customers manage and co-ordinate their blended programmes and take the administration out of booking rooms. Classroom Connect is the key to integrating the management of your classroom and online training all in one place. Find out more here.
