Everyone is talking about blended learning, but that does not mean everyone is doing it. At the 2011 ASTD Techknowledge Conference, Allison Rossett presented results of a study that showed that most learning professionals say that the use of e-learning is important but that very few are actually implementing it. This statement makes me wonder why. My guess is that people make things more complicated than they are.
This is certainly the case with blended learning. The thought of combining multiple learning modalities, synchronous, and asynchronous learning methods could make one’s head spin. But when it comes right down to it, blended learning can be quite simple.
