Blended Learning for the Time-Starved Employee PDF Print E-mail

blended

It’s 2011 and a couple of things hold true for all of us:

  1. We all wish there were more hours in the day.
  2. We all need to learn new skills. 

But how can we learn new skills if we don’t have the time?

Internexia has been working closely with corporations and colleges in Malaysia for over ten years to tackle exactly this issue. Our solution? Blended learning.

Some training companies offer class-based training. Some companies offer online training. Internexia offers both. Over the years, we have found that our clients prefer to use a mix of both styles of learning. We call this ‘blended learning’.

Why would anyone want to do both online and class-based learning? Both styles of learning have their advantages and disadvantages. You can do online learning at your own pace and in your own time. On the other hand, class-based instruction offers that social interaction that is so important to us as individuals. With blended learning, you can have the advantages of both learning styles.

According to a 2009 meta study from the US Department of Education: “Students who took all or part of their class online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional face-to-face instruction.”

We run courses that are 50% online and 50% face-to-face or 30% online and 70% face-to-face or vice versa. The best ‘blend’ depends on the individual needs of the client – mainly it comes down to time and availability. Yes, cost plays a part in the decision, too.

In the first half of 2011, Internexia’s clients have included Bank Negara Malaysia, iCIMB, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. Standard Chartered Bank and Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia.
