Additional benefits of online training within blended learning
A blended learning approach improves the quality of students’ learning, is more efficient than just classroom training, and helps beat the forgetting curve. But these are not the only benefits of blended learning. There are more.
Creating e-learning has a huge benefit for teachers. Authoring tools have the option to add co-authors, which allows teachers to work together. When two or more teachers capture combined knowledge online, there is more chance of hitting the mark for learners.
Teachers can obtain students’ scores within seconds after tests and online course participation. With this data, teachers can see who is learning well and who is still struggling. With traditional learning, the only way to find out who is struggling is for students to admit it and they very rarely do this for fear of ‘sounding silly’ or being mocked. Once the teacher knows, they can use flipped learning to do homework in class and really help those who are struggling to retain the information and understand it successfully.
Improve motivation of your learners
Blended learning and e-learning courses can be fantastic for motivation because students are awarded more control over their learning. They can improve their own development by spending time online whilst receiving the right support they need from the teachers. This is also good news for teachers. They can better utilize their own skills and be aware of when students lack the understanding of certain topics.
More focus on students’ strengths and weaknesses
Online learning allows for more personalized learning. Teachers have data for the strengths and weaknesses of each student. That gives them an opportunity to bring everybody up to the same level. With simple tests and scores, teachers can assess performance within seconds!
