    • Create an effective online/classroom blended training program
    • Use simulations, stories, and social networks to create blended learning
    • Evaluate the applicability of new technologies to specific training settings
  • 2. Today’s Agenda
    • Why E-learning is Not Working
    • The Promise of Blended Learning
    • Effective Ingredients of Blended Learning
    • Creating the Blended Class of the Future
    • Discussion / Q&A
  • 3. A Quick Introduction
    • Bjorn Billhardt, CEO of Enspire Learning
    • Offers blended leadership programs, simulations, games, and custom programs
    • Clients include Microsoft, MIT, Yahoo, SAP, Pfizer, American Heart Association, UNICEF, and Harvard
  • 4. 2000 Headlines
    • “ E-learning will make e-mail look like a rounding error”
      • John Chambers, CEO of Cisco
    • “ Online Education to Be Free; Billionaire Envisions Cyber-U”
    • “ NotHarvard.com Sues Harvard”
  • 5. IDC Projections
  • 6. Is E-learning Working?
    • Low engagement with recorded slides
    • Low relevance of content
    • No learning context
    • No social context
    • But… why is it still being used?
  • 7. Maturing Technology
  • 8. Ingredients / Best Practices of the Blended Classroom of the Future (Classroom Brainstorming Exercise)
    • Engage live subject matter experts online
    • Create a lab environment - live or virtual – for technical training
    • Use online collaboration tools for application sharing
    • Create virtual scenarios – as pretests or as part of the classroom
    • Share user stats – not just to test and record learners, but for fun!
    • Find and utilize related media to illustrate points – movies, etc.
    • Utilize interactive tools of web collaboration software - polling, breakout chat rooms, etc.
    • Create personalized learning experiences
  • 9. Blending it Together
    • “ One lesson we learned is that the highest impact programs … blend a more complex media with one or more of the simpler media.” - Josh Bersin
    Video E-learning Podcasts Wikis/blogs Job Aids Lectures Online simulations & games Webinars ARGs Case studies Coaching Informal learning EPS Reference library 2nd Life Virtual labs On-the-job assignments 360 Assessments Classroom simulations Synchronous Asynchronous Complex Easy
  • 10. Effective Ingredients of Blended Learning
  • 11. 3 Effective Ingredients of A Blended Class
    • Stories: Content with relevance (and humor)
    • Simulations : Games that give feedback and reinforce learning
    • Social Interactions: Collaboration that creates context and reinforces learning

      • Branching
      • Case-study-based
      • Spreadsheet-based
    • Team-based competitive simulation experiences
  • 16. Different Types and Uses of Training Simulations (Classroom Brainstorming Exercise) Classroom Online Both Lab exercises for technical training Online mini-games to reinforce knowledge Software Simulation (using Captivate) Business simulation with role-playing in classroom Online single-player and multi-player games (strategy, business acumen, etc.) Sales Simulation – Customer Service; demonstrating process as a success story Flight control room simulations Scenario-based soft-skill simulations; Show both correct and incorrect way of doing things Business simulations with competition in classroom or online Choose your own adventure style simulation
