Our blended learning concept

Blended learning, also known as integrated learning, is a learning concept that combines traditional classroom teaching with digital and online-based learning methods. This approach utilises the advantages of both learning worlds: the interactive and personal nature of traditional teaching and the flexibility and accessibility of e-learning.

The aim of blended learning is to create a more efficient and effective learning experience by maximising the strengths of each method and minimising their weaknesses.

 

Blended learning is considered an advanced learning strategy in which education is personalised and democratised, i.e. participants partially contribute to the content themselves. It allows learners to set their own pace and teachers to dynamically adapt content to meet the needs and abilities of individual students.

 

In corporate training, it enables organisations to deliver training cost-effectively and with minimal downtime by taking part of the learning online.

Advantages of blended learning

Blended learning offers a number of advantages that make it an attractive learning method for companies. Here are the five most important advantages:

Increased flexibility

Blended learning enables a high degree of flexibility in the organisation of the learning process. Learners can choose the time and place of their learning themselves, which is particularly advantageous for professionals who need to harmonise their continuing education with work and private commitments. Online modules can be completed at any time and from anywhere, while the face-to-face phases promote in-depth interaction and direct dialogue.

Core components of our blended learning concept

Our blended learning concept effectively combines the advantages of different forms of learning to provide a comprehensive and flexible educational experience.

Classroom training

...enable direct exchange and personal feedback, which makes it essential for the practical application and consolidation of skills.

E-learning modules

...offer the advantage that they can be adapted to the individual learning speed of the participants, so that everyone can progress at their own pace.

ONLINE Trainings

...and virtual classrooms (also possible in 3D worlds and virtual reality) promote networking and collaboration between participants, even across geographical borders.

Evaluation

Finally, targeted feedback and evaluation methods are used to objectively assess performance in order to continuously promote and optimise learning success.
