We build our knowledge and skills in life in many different ways, so why should that be any different in the workplace?
When we look for new information outside of work, we naturally use a mix of channels to satisfy our curiosity. We may validate our YouTube research in conversation with friends as well as fact-checking through a trusted app.
A blended learning strategy embraces the principles of how we naturally learn and change, and embeds them into our digital learning design.
To the individual, this will appear as a learner journey with a clear path, that contains a carefully considered set of learning activities, media, and channels.
To the organization, the right blended strategy ensures all resources and tools are being used optimally, and all touchpoints on the journey are reported and tracked against business performance.
Our blended learning strategies ensure you have the right components in place, so that you can create journeys that drive learner engagement and behavior change over time.

We use our tried and tested methodologies to deliver tailored blends that work for your learners.

The team has found it a real benefit having the eLearning modules to support what is taught in the class. We have found that learners have to spend less time recapping over elements from the previous week and that students feel much more confident and prepared for their final exams. As well as using the modules throughout the course, they are redoing them to help revise for assessments and exams. The fact that the course is now truly blended learning ensures the students have a more well-rounded education experience."
How We Create Effective Blend Strategies
When designing effective blend strategies we put learners at the heart of our thinking. We create an environment and ecosystem that focuses on the learner experience and learning outcomes.
Our blend design model explores the 10 key modes or foundations of an optimal blended learning ecosystem:

Give People Their Own Learning Journeys
This has two key drivers:
- Deliver learning that is personalized, that gives each learner what they need, when they need it, to do their jobs effectively and achieve positive change
- Give learners the flexibility to create their own learning paths
Connect Learners With Each Other so They Can Learn Together
Learning together, or social learning, is one of the foundations of how we learn. We all learn from others in everyday life, so learning programs should leverage this power wherever possible. The way people connect digitally now makes this a strategy we can use with real effect.
Captivate and Challenge Learners
We all know that learning can’t happen if we don’t engage learners and command their attention. That’s why our designers always look to maximize learner engagement, often through scenarios, gamification, or immersion.
Realize Value and Use Measurement to Improve the Journey and the Outcomes
Above all, this is all about learning measurement that matters. Our goal is to measure the business impact and effectiveness of all learning programs to give organizations valuable insights that will shape their future learning and create a culture of continuous improvement.
