The challenge today is to maximize dwindling training budgets whilst providing effective and consistent learning events on a global scale. Blended learning can meet these challenges but its presence is still relatively small. Often HR and L&D professionals, confused by the plethora of learning technology which exists today, don’t know where to start so do little or nothing and stay with an instructor led model. The purpose of this book is to remove confusion and instill clarity so that HR and L& D professionals have the tools and the motivation to try out blended learning in their workplaces.
