In today's world, lack of time prevents many people from being able to attend Instructor Led training courses and for some studying at their own pace is the optimum solution.
CourseMonster’s Blended and eLearning solutions offer a convenient way of gaining new skills, giving delegates more control over their training and allows the flexibility to combine studying with personal, work, family and lifestyle commitments.
Blended Learning gives delegates the flexibility to complete part of their training online (eLearning) and adjust studying to times that are convenient to them, and part of the time, studying in an Instructor Led classroom environment.
Advantages of Blended Learning:
- Combines the best of both worlds and allows students to study the e-learning modules at their own pace to fit in with their lifestyle
- Facilitates students to be at the same learning stage as the e-learning modules will have already been studied prior to attending the classroom
- Can help reduce total training time and minimise time away from the office
- Enables students to research or reflect on what they have learned
- Students are still able to interact with other students, participate in group discussion, hand-on labs and exercises
- Students can still gain face-to-face support, feedback and answers to questions and queries from their instructor
- Can give a more dynamic classroom experience
- Can be more effective than purely online or face-to-face Instructor Led training courses
eLearning gives delegates the option to study virtually at a time and place convenient to them. Unlike Blended Learning, all modules are self paced and completed in the learner’s environment for the duration of the training programme with no classroom sessions.
Advantages of eLearning
- The accessibility of eLearning enables students to access training at times convenient for them
- eLearning gives students the flexibility to complete as many modules in one session as they wish, or in small bite-sized modules
- Studying is completed at the students own pace without feeling pressurised to keep up with a classroom peer group
- Reduced training costs and no travel down-time
- Students are able to virtually interact with other students, their training mentor, participate in group discussions and exercises
- Students can skip over material they already know and focus on topics that they’d like to learn.
- eLearning encourages students to reflect on what they have learnt and for some retention may be better
