What is blended learning? Blended learning is a combination of multiple approaches to learning. This kind of learning can be achieved through the use of blended virtual and physical resources. A typical example for this would be a combination of technology-based materials and face-to-face sessions used together to deliver instruction.The Writers Block 1 1 The term Blended Learning is most often applied to the use of technology for instruction delivery. An example of such learning can be a training session
  4. 4. Blended learning vs other learning techniques In order to understand what blended learning/training is and the benefits it offers, it is important to differentiate between various kinds of learning, namely face-to-face learning and e-learning, and their disadvantages. Face-to-face learning E-learning Face-to-face learning refers to traditional instructor- Today, as technology evolves and businesses led training that takes place within a classroom.

E-learning refers to a method of transferring Today, there is a shift from one-way knowledge knowledge supported by multimedia content and transmission to student-centered learning, which delivering it synchronously and/or asynchronously focuses on encouraging students to assume such over an electronic network. It is not considered to higher-order thinking tasks as analysis, synthesis, be a replacement for an instructor-led or classroom and evaluation. The usage of such techniques in training, but acts as a supplement to reinforce the classroom has a powerful impact upon crucial knowledge. Thus, it helps in overcoming students learning. Another way of face-to-face physical and logistic limitations of traditional learning is using the cooperative learning training methodologies. techniques. This method proves to be useful in case of more complex projects, where many E-learning is the unifying term to describe the fields trainers are working on a project that demands of online learning, Web-based training, and learners to work in groups of three or more. The technology-delivered instruction/CBT. term ‘cooperative learning’ also suggests learners coming together and working in groups, contributing to the collective learning activity. Computer-based Training (CBT) and Web-based Training (WBT) Though the face-to-face learning approach has many visible advantages such as social interaction, Computer-based Training (CBT) is an instructional verbal and non-verbal communication, permanency mode whereby the learners gain knowledge by of content, group activities, etc., in today’s using computer.

CBT services are especially effective Disadvantages: for training people to use computer applications. With the help of CBT, users can also study for  Dependency on spoken words/verbal formal qualifications, accreditations, and continued communication professional development. Advantages of CBT are:  Absence of one-on-one attention/instruction available anywhere any time, one-time expenditure  Inability to cater to individual learning styles of for learning, convenient method to train new staff. students  Inability to retain the attention span of learners Web-based training (WBT) is also a kind of training  Time-bound learning sessions that is similar to CBT, but it is delivered over the Internet/intranet.  High cost of training  Need for physical presence of students and Development cost, requirement for self-motivation scheduled classes and discipline, absence of human instructor to answer questions, generic training materials are the most common disadvantages of CBT and WBT.The Writers Block 2
  5. 5. Blended learning vs other learning techniques Though, traditionally, e-learning solutions have been more popular among the IT/telecom and banking sectors, many pharmaceutical companies are presently adopting similar packages, especially for sales representative training, assessment, and performance support. Observing the current situation, on an average, an Indian pharmaceutical company has hundreds, sometimes, thousands of on-field sales representatives. In such a case, managing classroom training for a large number of learners is not feasible. Moreover, 60-70 percent of the training budget would be depleted in managing logistics for a large number spread over as large a geographical area as India, rendering it a very expensive exercise. In comparison, the limitation of classroom training is that it is time-bound and can be conducted only at a designated time. This implies that a learner is required to wait for the scheduling of the class. The waiting period could affect the productivity adversely. As a result, e-training is becoming increasingly popular in the present situation and has been replacing the demand for the traditional classroom training. E-learning is often considered to be a source of repetitive training that offers quick and on-time delivery of training for the learners. It ensures consistency, lowers the training logistics and administration overheads, and is readily available anytime, anywhere.  Benefits of Virtual Learning For Corporates For Employees The following are the benefits of Virtual Learning for The following are the benefits of Virtual Learning for corporate customers: employees:  Involves a fraction of the cost of traditional training  Access to interactive, self-paced, multimedia methods training, anytime, and anywhere - at work, home  Provides ‘anytime anywhere training’ and or while traveling performance support to a geographically  Access to multimedia enabled Web-based dispersed work force performance support system  Offers interactive, self-paced courses on various  Self-paced training and performance support to topics access the required topics at any given time  Helps in creating a custom catalogue that  Choice to play entire chapters, or utilize the specifically meets the needs of employees search function to answer a specific question  Charges only for training content  Buttons to pause, rewind and fast forward through  Enables easy planning, budgeting, and paying for topics training expenditures  Engaging and robust Web-based self-paced  Eliminates hardware investment, development classes time, and additional staff requirements  Learning while performing, resulting in increased  Reduces the need and the cost of classroom productivity training  Pre- and post-assessment exams for most of the  Allows users to learn faster, as well as, increase courses comprehension and retention rates by up to 100  Immediate feedback to all users with the topics percent as opposed to standard training methods they need additional training on  Enables employees to learn as they perform,  Less than 10 percent of the cost of the best rather than removing them from the work place instructor-led training options  Offers pre- and post-assessment exams for each course Despite the benefits listed above, e-learning has  Provides detailed reports with insight into many disadvantages, rendering it ineffective to a individual progress and test scores certain extent.  Offers managers a centralized resource for distributing and tracking their employees skills  Need for ready access to a computer and Internet development connection  Increases employees productivity  Need for computer literacy/knowledge of learning  Offers quick implementation and easy roll-out technologies  Lack of instructor-student interaction  Unavailability of the instructor when needed  Reduced/lack of social and cultural interactionThe Writers Block 3 3
  6. 6. Blended Learning Though e-learning has many benefits, it can never completely substitute the traditional way of learning, say most experts. What is seen as one of the biggest shortcomings of e-learning is that one misses the personal link/contact that one would otherwise share with a mentor. It is here that blended learning comes into the picture. E-learning, when blended appropriately with classroom training, can be a powerful holistic mode of instruction delivery. All the technologies used in e-learning can be used in blended learning as well, making a unique comprehensive approach to learning. Technologies used in blended learning Blended Learning: A means of enhancing business growth Web-Technologies Blended learning is increasingly being accepted by  Online Interaction Means: E-mail, Web sites, the corporate world to catalyze business and blogs, wikis, e-portfolios, instant messaging organizational growth, which is highly dependent (IM), short message service (SMS), discussion on the quality of human capital deployed.

TWB’s training department follows up with students by sending out exercises through emails after the classroom training is over. To date, this is known as one of the best ways to ensure learning and retention. We blend various components including courses, content portions, IM pings, blogs feedback, and many other things, to provide maximum benefits to learners.The Writers Block 6 6
  9. 9. Case Studies Case Study 1: A Large Leading Software Company A large software company takes the decision to move their technical documentation effort from the US to India. The team in India had the option of hiring and creating a new team or forming a new team from the existing employees. The Writers Block (TWB) is engaged with this software company to search for members with the right talent within the company, who could then be inducted into the technical documentation sector by way of evaluation tests. A technical support team of 20 members, identified as having the base skills, is created. The team was provided with continuous training in best practices by TWB. As a result, this team starts taking over from the US team in 2 months. Ultimately the team doubles the size within next 3 months. Case Study 2: A Multinational Multi-Brand Company The internal market analytics team of a multinational company is engaged in serving its subsidiaries. Such research and analysis is typically for the middle management staff members who determine the key market factors, create decisions points, and put forward these as reports to senior management. However, the multinational wants to change this scenario and wants this internal team to serve the company at a global level. This change means that the local middle management cushion is not present anywhere before the analysis is presented to the customer. TWB provides the exact solution and helps the multinational company formulate a training program for the research team. This step ensures that the research team is able to present its results as research reports to its customers worldwide in a useful way. This training, based on blended learning approach, is created for teams of 20-25 members for over 300 employees spread all over India. The key objective of this well-defined blended learning approach through TWB intervention is to ensure that the existing work is not disrupted. With a long term personalized intervention, there is a surety that each member gets personalized attention. Case Study 3: A Large KPO Provider The said company is one of the largest KPO providers in India and continues to be aggressively engaged in providing KPO services like Analytics. The BPO part of the business also involves serving some customers for the KPO services. The company wants to make use of the available manpower, provided they are found suitable and wants to move them into analytics. The objective is that the analytics team should be able to carry out the analysis required and present the output to the customers as research reports with clear decision points. Under the solution provided, team members are evaluated by the KPO provider team for research, analysis and domain skills, and by TWB for communication capability. The employees who are suitable are promoted to the analytics team. TWB, together with the KPO provider, devises a month’s training program for this team. TWB, using a blended learning approach, conducts a four-day essential classroom training and a four-weeks TWB Online training that runs parallel to the training by the KPO. This is followed by another three days of classroom training. TWB helps the KPO provider create a suitable transformation with the most effective intervention for its team. The team starts taking on responsibilities within a month. Such blended training solution is being laid out for over 500 employees across four locations.The Writers Block 7
