People have been lamenting lately about the lack of available talent, particularly in companies that primarily serve technology companies. I regularly hear things like “there is no-one left to hire” and “we can’t find anyone with the appropriate skill set”. I disagree with both statements.
At Entirenet, we often work with clients who have questions about “blended learning solutions.” In this post, I want to list a few pros and cons of “going blended,” and then leave you with a few questions you can ask yourself to help determine the best path to follow.
Classroom Training Pros:
- Instruction occurs face to face. The instructor can see/recognize when a student is understanding the material– or not understanding it – and offer a personal touch.
- Classroom training is the current comfort zone for many organizations. Students may be more accustomed to it and may not feel comfortable with online training.
- Classroom training often comes with a manual that students can refer to after the class is over.
