Blended and Hybrid learning: Creating the right learner journey


Blended learning is often used interchangeably with hybrid learning, but the two differ in their use of digital assets. While blended learning is usually a mix of digital and classroom modalities for formal learning experiences, hybrid learning combines formal training with informal and experiential learning in the workflow. The learning journey should provide the right combination of training assets and modalities (e.g., asynchronous eLearning modules, videos, simulations, job aids, in addition to instructor-led or virtual instructor-led) to drive learning outcomes.
