Blended Learning

Bedeutung von Blended Learning

Blended learning is understood as the optimal combination of different forms of learning. A blended learning chain consists of classroom training, virtual classrooms and digital self-learning units. In doing so, the key characteristics of the individual learning methods are combined in order to achieve the maximum learning success. In the joint learning phases of the classroom or virtual classroom coaching, the participants exchange their experiences with one another. In the digital units, the participants learn at their own pace. Successful blended learning consists of combining the digital and group phases and allowing them to blend into each other.
Blended learning is more than just kicking off with an e-learning unit or following up with a few questions after a training session. Blended learning turns a learning event into a learning process. Blended learning actively involves learners. New learning impulses are provided continually over a longer period of time and the learning content is consolidated. Learning success with blended learning is sustainable and ensures long-term learning achievement.
of experts consider blended learning to be an important learning setting over the coming three years.

An overview of the advantages of blended learning


The participants learn and consolidate their knowledge throughout a longer process. By this means, they achieve a far better learning curve.

Individual learner types

The participants determine their own learning pace and are able to repeat and look up content as often as they like. Learning can be integrated flexibly into their normal work routine.


The participants are organised within the course. All information on the course and on the participants’ success is generated automatically.

Reduced loss of productivity

With blended learning, the content is split into small learning nuggets. This makes learning in between times and during breaks possible. As a side effect, the participants’ ability to take in other things also increases.

Return on Investment

Blended learning is more economical than a comparable conventional training course. The investment per learning hour is 50% lower, resulting in a faster ROI.

Varied digital units

For successful e-learning, both the didactic as well as the graphical presentation are crucial. A modern and appealing design thereby supports the willingness to learn and the learning experience. In addition, a varied combination of different learning media ensures a constantly high level of attention. The entertaining nature of the media used is also crucial. For an additional increase in motivation, the digital training is supplemented with gamification content. When participants log in or successfully complete tasks, for example, they receive awards that they can view on the platform.
