Blended Learning can be defined as education that combines face-to-face classroom methods with an online component to form an integrated instructional approach.

In the U.S. Department of Educations’ “Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies,” it was found that training which combines face-to-face instruction with an online component has a larger advantage for both the learner and the instructor.

  • For the Learner: Blended learning satisfies different learning styles and increases student engagement and collaboration.
  • For the Instructor: Instructors can use the PowerPoint slides housed online to lead the course, and hand out the printed handouts for classroom activities.
  • For the Organization: The online component allows access to data analytics allowing the organization to see what content students are accessing; ultimately using that data to find out which content leads to the greatest student performance.

Here is an example of a blended learning solution that combines an online library of training materials, print-on-demand and shipping/distribution:
