Why blended learning approaches work

by L&D31 Oct 2016

Social and informal learning can boost employee outcomes, according to new research.

The research was published in a new white paper by Docebo, a cloud-based learning management system (LMS) provider, reports PR Web.

The white paper outlines how organisations that implement a progressive blended learning approach in their learning and development (L&D) strategies are more likely to achieve process efficiency and productivity improvements.

The paper, titled: ‘Beyond the LMS: Modernize your Corporate Learning Programs by Supporting Social and Informal Learning,’ reports recent statistics showing organisations that have integrated the increasingly popular 70:20:10 framework into their L&D strategies experience improved processes (73%) and better overall efficiency (72%).

Among other findings, the white paper also illustrates how organisations with a progressive, modern approach are more likely to attract talent and respond quickly to business changes.

The report leverages research findings collected by Docebo partners Brandon Hall Group and Towards Maturity, two leaders in organisational excellence and learning technology.

“The paper highlights the deficiencies of traditional learning approaches, and provides guidance on why and how businesses should overcome these challenges in order to ensure new and developing learners are provided the best tools and opportunities to stay effective in their roles,” Claudio Erba, CEO and Founder at Docebo, told PR Web.

The report is geared towards leaders in the L&D and training fields who seek to understand how informal, blended learning approaches play a role in the state of learning in the 21st century.

It confronts some of the biggest challenges associated with traditional learning approaches, such as the prevalence of hidden knowledge within organisations, and delivers key strategies for overcoming learning obstacles.
