Blended learning is the combining of E-learning and instructor-led training. This method allows an organization to address the diverse learning needs of all its employees 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
E-learning can be effective and convenient to teach fundamentals or basic orientation type information. This is effective, as mundane aspects of basic instruction are moved to an E-learning environment, which can be more interactive and engaging. However, advanced skills, which may require variation in delivery depending on the trainees, are more effectively delivered in face-to-face instructor-led environments.
