Technology to Manage Hybrid, On-ground, and Online Learning Programs
July 26, 2022

Learning programs are no longer limited to in-person or on-ground learning. The past couple of years has emphasized the flexibility that a strong program can provide. Whether you operate an on-ground, hybrid, or fully online delivery style, knowing how to make these styles work together is essential. Here are three ways technology can support your management of these various styles.

1. Superior Design in Online Experiences 

Some of the greatest advantages of online learning include the accessibility of education as well as the tools and materials available to learners from wherever they are. Learners can engage with course material on their own timeline whether the courses are on-ground, online, or hybrid. Online and hybrid learning, done well, can increase retention rates by 25 to 60 percent as compared to traditional learning [1].  

Because it’s such a productive avenue, we recommend investing in your online experiences to ensure your user can adequately learn and engage. It’s important to make smart investments in design up front: around 94 percent of first impressions are related to design [2].

2. Digital Twins for All Activities

Learners must be able to access materials for all types of learning, including on-ground learning. As a result, all projects must have a “digital twin.” A digital twin is a virtual model designed to accurately reflect a physical object or experience. In eLearning, this technology allows learners to have virtual models or copies of the concepts they’re learning about on-ground.  

It’s predicted that 91 percent of internet platforms will contain some form of digital twin capability by 2026 [3]. The use of this technology for all activities will enhance learners’ ability to engage with material whether they’re online or in person.

3. Easy to Use SaaS Technology

Your learning and development (L&D) department must track all education (on-ground, online, or hybrid) programs in a single place, and your SaaS technology can facilitate this tracking and delivery.   

Today, 99 percent of businesses use at least one SaaS (“software as a service”) solution [4]. This type of technology can increase productivity and profitability when used correctly. In other words, it must be easy for customers to use. Ease of use is a critical component of software, but only 50 percent of websites communicate their value in the right way [5]. Your SaaS software should be intuitive and usable with little to no training or assistance. When SaaS software is implemented to eliminate boundaries, distance, and repetitive tasks, it can increase productivity and profitability by allowing your staff to reallocate the way they spend their time.
