The Art of Knowledge
"Blended Learning gains approval"
This article comes from the RSS feed Online Learning Update. It talks about the acceptance of blended learning. This sparked a quote that I jus saw from that diatribe below.
- Blended Learning does not work. How could it? If snake oil does not work, how could bottling it in a variety of different containers increase its effectiveness? Look at the messaging of any vendor using the term “Blended Learning”. It is a thinly veiled effort to sidestep any complaint over a specific form factor. Customer complains about one and the conversations shifts to another. Clever.
The article states:
- "Blended Learning employs an appropriate mix of delivery media such as classroom training, web-based training, virtual classrooms, books and mentoring to create flexible, cost-effective solutions that ensure individuals achieve the optimal learning experience and develop their skills to their maximum potential....The research also exposed significant regional variation with 85% of Scottish clients preferring training in the classroom with only 63% of London-based respondents preferring this method. "
This seems like the band-aid philospohy working again.
