We’ve established that blended learning [1] is one of the most successful learning methods for the corporate environment. There are also many types of blended learning designs, and we have determined that there are a few approaches you can take to ensure the program is not set to fail. The considerations we are discussing here relate to steps you can take during the blended learning program design.When implementing a blended learning program, comprehensive redesigns demand a lot of effort, and the more change that is required, the harder it can be to scale. While we advise taking the time required for a comprehensive redesign, if indeed that is feasible, developers can tend to err on the side of caution to ease implementation of a new program. The risk here is designing interventions that are not a significant departure from the original offering, and while that may be comforting to the learner, this type of cosmetic restructuring is not as effective in terms of learning outcomes.
