What is the blended learning approach l.jpg
What is the blended learning approach

  • Over the past years, the approach has been to use technology-based media to augment traditional forms of training delivery, such as classroom instruction and text-based materials leading to the rise of the term "blended learning”.

  • This term has come to mean different things to different people. Other exchangeable terms also used include “hybrid learning”, “mixed learning”

  • It is an effective way to accomplish learning, using resources optimally through the varying “blending” of both face-to-face and virtual resources in a manner that is appropriate and customized for the particular scenario.

  • The blended learning solution is now viewed as a process rather than an event.

The ITU e-Learning Platform

  • The “ITU e-learning center” was established in the 2002 as a tool to deliver distance training in developing countries.

  • Thisplatform has 2 major goals: Promoting the e-Learning culture in the telecommunication sector and to develop training programs.

  • Each year more than 1000 participants are trained through more than 50 on-line courses in different domains.

  • The HRD e-learning activities are carried out through different projects and initiatives, collaborating with telecom companies, universities, research institutes and administrations.

Key Findings

  • Technical scaling achieved (in numbers)

  • Achieve economies of scale through delivering online courses (Case in point : Latin America)

  • Technology advancement far more rapid than training methodology and practices.

  • Human factor issues

    • New roles for teachers or trainers

    • Changes in the learning culture slow to affect
