How Face-To-Face & E-Learning Can Work Together

Date Added: 29/11/2022

If we asked you to think about employee training, what would you immediately think of? For some of us, our first thought will be e-learning. For others, it’ll be face-to-face training.

While there are clear benefits of both, some people believe that organisations need to choose one or the other. However, studies have shown that face-to-face learning combined with e-learning (or blended learning) is a highly effective way to train employees. We’ll explore how the two can work together.


Reinforcement of Learning

If you’ve ever heard the phrase ‘repetition is key’, you’ll know exactly what we mean by this first point!

The combination of both e-learning and face-to-face training means employees are consistently having their newfound knowledge reinforced.

Employees will have the opportunity to learn in the comfort of their own home or office, at their own pace, they can then have this supported and reinforced by in-person learning.


Suitable For A Range Of Learners

It’s a fact of life that some people learn best in a structured environment while others learn best when there’s as much flexibility as possible.

Blended learning combining both e-learning and face-to-face training is suitable for a wide range of learners due to the mixture of both structured and flexible sessions.


Collaboration Is Key

Blended learning is a fantastic way of encouraging learning through collaboration. Employees will have the opportunity to flexibly access training via e-learning, before coming together with others in a face-to-face environment to discuss what they’ve learned.


Blended Learning Can Save Money

As a business owner, you’re likely constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency and save money within your company

Combining the benefits of face-to-face training such as collaboration, opportunity to ask questions, structured learning, etc. with the flexibility and time-saving benefits of e-learning can massively drive down costs for businesses, while also improving efficiency!
