We L&D professionals are lucky. With today’s technology, we have options to engage every learner audience, in every possible environment. Even if you have a tight budget and a small team, you can deliver a comprehensive blended learning program. And this is all thanks to learning technology.

Blended learning programs can be a beautiful thing. Need to cover a global workforce? Use virtual classrooms to engage learners everywhere. Can't get employees to leave their desks?

But wait, you say, it’s not that easy. My organization has expectations.
Your organization may expect learning to take place in person. In their opinion, if there isn't a person in front of the classroom, teaching with an apple on their desk, it's not “real” training. Sometimes the perception comes from your learners - other times it's from your leaders. Either way, it will take time to change your organization's collective mindset.
