Blended learning is a mixture of online and face-to-face training.
Get the best of both worlds by combining an online approach with hands-on practical work and social interactions that you get within a classroom. One way you can implement blended learning is a flipped-classroom approach.
In this approach, you can deliver key information, core skills or theory - even ask survey-type questions - online, before a classroom-training event. By using blended learning approaches, trainees have more time to absorb the key learning points and retain knowledge more effectively.
Our modules are designed to be 10-20 minute training courses that ensure that new information is easily absorbed, and training can be completed without having to set aside large amounts of time. They are also relevant to employees' performance needs.
At Bolt, we have developed a system that facilitates this process.
When delivering online to an individual, audio and interactive activities are enabled, but when a trainer is delivering the same course, it mutes the audio and replaces the activities with guides and demonstrations. Therefore, the same training can be used for both online training and face-to-face training without the need for two separate versions.
The system can automatically generate an offline 'PowerPoint' style module, with which you can incorporate online training into the classroom environment.
This helps with consistency in message, content and style and also makes it easy to link classroom training to eLearning, as pre-work or as performance reinforcement after the training event.
Some trainees learn better alone, some need a social interaction. Those two don’t have to be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, combined they allow the trainees and their companies to flourish.
