This learner engagement strategy is pivotal in providing employees with opportunities to expand their skill sets by enabling them to learn at their own pace at any hour of the day. It’s the most efficient way to train employees on new processes and reach the ultimate goal of expediting user adoption of new tools.
Blended learning is a powerful approach because it allows L&D professionals to cater to the diverse learning preferences of their workforce. By combining traditional instructor-led training with asynchronous learning methods, blended learning allows employees to learn in ways that best suit their individual needs and preferences.
Overall, it helps organizations create a more comprehensive and effective learning strategy leading to a more skilled, knowledgeable, and engaged workforce.
