  20. 3 Key Challenges in Implementing Blended Learning

  21. 3 Key Challenges in Implementing Blended Learning C User Reaction B Technology A Top / Sr. Management Engagement

  22. A. Top / Sr. Management Engagement 3 Key Challenges in Implementing Blended Learning • Not enough direction from top level on advancing training function • Unenthusiastic participation of management in strategising • Myopic focus on cost leads to long term problems • Hesitation / Apprehensions / Even fear of open collaboration and social interactions • Holding on to belief in only ‘pushing’ training • Not taking Training itself seriously

  23. B. Technology (or the lack of it) 3Key Challenges in Implementing Blended Learning • Lack of experience in using technology for managing training • Inexperienced or unwilling IT to experiment/support new technology • Fear of losing manual control to a system • Concerns of providing technical support • Well thought out plan for integrating various systems needed to implement Blended Learning.

  24. C. User Reaction 3Key Challenges in Implementing Blended Learning • Acceptance of newer training forms due to cultural (organisational) preoccupations • Insufficient from-the-top directives to team managers to adopt new training forms • Lack of an easy-to-use system may increase dissatisfaction • Rise of Mobile Learning

  25. The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning

  26. Effective Resource Management 1 Leveraging on Learner Interaction 2 During and after Learning Program Effective Management of 3 Training Activities Effective Cost Management 4 Through Virtual Classroom Seamless Integrated Socialand Informal Learning 5 The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning 6 Mobile / Multi-device Learning

  27. 1. Effective Resource Management The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • Ease in Creation of Training Program using Single System • Enabling Learners Through Engaging & Dynamic Content • Effective Inventory Management • Pre-Training & Post-Training Evaluation • Centralised Administrative Management • Easy Authentication • Centralised User Management • Easy Assignment & Delivery of Training • Reports for Better Analytics & Decision Making

  28. 2. Leveraging Learner Interaction During and After Learning Program The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • Notifications • Sharing & Collaboration • Feedback • Surveys • Evaluation • Communities & Discussion Forum

  29. 3. Training Activity Management The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • Scheduling • Announcements • Reminders • Follow ups • Logistic Arrangements

  30. 4. Effective Training Delivery Through Virtual Classroom for Remote Location Users The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • Training to Distributed Workforce remotely • Avoid remote location travels • Less logistic hassles • Better control over the class for effective delivery of training

  31. 5. Seamless and Integrated Social and Informal Learning The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • LMS may have an internal set of modules to enable users to engage with each other for • Content sharing • Enhanced collaboration and knowledge sharing • Create channels of communication not linked to formal training, yet enabling a wider reach of learning • Even connect with external world feeds of information • Network of Experts • Advent of TinCan • Allows users to capture learning through any real-world activity

  32. 6. Multi-device and Mobile Learning The Case for Leveraging LMS for Blended Learning • LMSs are increasingly becoming responsive to multiple devices including handheld ones • Mobile Learning is about both • A delivery medium [more around technology] • A learning methodology • Videos • Nuggets • On-demand access and even offline access to content at time of need • Performance Support (pre and post learning activities)

  33. Poll # 4 How many systems does your organisation currently use to manage the training function? • One • Two • Three • More than Three • None

  39. A Case Study 5 Key Learnings

  40. 5 Key Learnings from Our Client Challenges • Diversified geographies & demographics • Different methodologies required to deliver training to this diversified target audience • Flexibility to choose the right blend of learning by each center (located nationwide) for their target audience • Maximise use of available technology mediums to deliver the blended learning • Centralised administrative controls

  41. 5 Key Learnings from Our Client Solution • Expanded the curriculum structure to include all the training methods • The learner could choose a training programme from a varied catalogue • Flexibility to create a programme in any desired sequence by Classroom Training Manager (CTM) based on the target audience • Centralised resource & inventory management • Centralised reporting available to each CTM • Use of Virtual Classroom to delivery remote trainings

  42. Poll # 5 Would you prefer to use a single system to manage blended learning? • Yes • No • Can’t Say

  43. Benefits of using an LMS for managing Blended Learning • Seamless, cohesive, unified experience for learners for all their training • Ability to generate comprehensive reports without the need to collate data from various systems or sources thus saving significant time and cost • More effective learning design focused on leveraging the unique benefits of various components

  44. Benefits of using LMS for managing Blended Learning (contd.) • Learner engagement can start much earlier and continue till much later, not just during the training activity • An LMS provides several opportunities for increased collaboration • Cost-effectively reach out to a geographically diverse user base • Centralised learning resources leads to better knowledge management • Able to access through a variety of devices

  45. Summary • Blended Learning is already in place – largely • A great need for a single easy-to-use system to manage blended learning in one place • The system should make it easy for the users and administrators to adapt to the new training forms • An LMS is a great choice for such a system. The LMS needs to be well designed to cater to various components in an integrated manner
