We keep saying that technology is just a tool, but what do we really mean? I have a full toolbox out in the garage, but I have to admit that I’ve used a shoe to hammer a nail into the wall on more than one occasion.

Are we using the right tools to design, develop, deliver, facilitate, produce, and curate learning? Or, are we using our shoes, staplers, or anything sturdy enough that we have on hand to get the job done?

 Today’s modern learning landscape calls for modern blended learning design. We aren’t designing courses anymore, we are designing experiences that support the learner in all their formal and informal moments of learning need.

This means modern design is about more than learning objectives. We need to think about where our learners are going to be when they are accessing content, what they are doing when they are accessing that content, and what level of expertise they need in that moment.

Modern blended learning includes five elements: technology, design, people, place, and time. Learning happens perpetually. Our instructional designs, and the technology we use to deploy them, must support this reality.

Blended learning design involves a much more complex equation than the one we used for traditional face-to-face (or even online) training solutions. We now must integrate learners, content, instructional teams, and technology into every piece of the learning process. To complicate things further, our learners embark on personal learning pathways, engaging with the parts of the design they need to meet their goals.
