Blended learning’s flexible, adaptable design possibilities make it an excellent option for corporate learning. Learners have the opportunity to engage with resources in all their moments of learning need, and instructional designers have the ability to address each learning objective authentically.

Comprehensive programs quickly become complex. How do we expect learners to navigate the experience thoughtfully and completely? We have to provide them with a map – a course map!

Modern learners are demanding a new approach to blended learning design—an approach that supports formal learning while allowing them to create their own personal learning paths. Instead of creating courses, successful talent development teams will create learning hubs populated with blended learning campaigns.

Blended learning campaigns support learner experiences through time-released lessons supported by cohesive content and live events. The best part? Blended learning campaign content isn’t single use: resources continue to be relevant to learners and their ongoing skill building after the formal campaign ends, during every moment of learning need.

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.

Modern learning requires modern instructional design. In the past, we designed stand-alone training events. To move into the future, our approach must evolve to address all possible moments of learning need. What’s the solution? Blended learning campaigns instead of courses.

The transition may require a thoughtful approach, but it’s not rocket science! By building on proven design methodologies and considering the needs of our modern learners, we can make the jump into the future.

Blended learning campaigns connect the dots between reusable content, allowing learners to create and follow their personal learning pathways, and turn to us as trusted advisers in their moments of learning need. Effective instructional design matches each learning objective to an appropriate instructional technique, implemented with the right strategy, and deployed using technology.
