LMS functionality: Blended learning
Manage virtual and face-to-face learning in one place
Blended learning brings together all the best elements of learning and organises them within a centralised platform.
While the benefits of e-learning over traditional learning are many, face-to-face learning still plays an important part in any organisation's L&D programme. To truly maximise the potential of both learning forms, it's well worth investing in an LMS with the facility to curate, manage, and schedule virtual and face-to-face learning in one place.
An LMS solution that offers blended learning functionality, such as Totara Learn, has been designed to harness all aspects of training an organisation may choose to deliver. For example, Totara Learn's Seminar function provides a booking system for scheduling in-person or video training events. Each event within a seminar activity can be customised with details such as training room location, start and finish time, cost, capacity, and more. These events can be set to run over multiple days or allow for unscheduled and wait-listed events. Crucially, learners can view and sign-up for seminar events via the LMS, with their attendance tracked and recorded.
The platform can also deliver multiple learning approaches thanks to its versatility, collaborative features, and SCORM compliance.
