Blended Learning


Blended learning has gained significant traction as a vital component of every learning leader’s L&D strategy. If you’re familiar with online learning, you’ve likely encountered the term. However, understanding what blended learning truly entails and how to incorporate it into your corporate L&D strategy can be valuable.

What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning refers to a unique learning methodology that blends traditional instructor-led classroom training with online learning components. Unlike pure eLearning, blended learning does not replace face-to-face instruction; instead, it leverages technology to enhance the learning experience and deepen comprehension of specific subjects. For instance, teachers may provide students with links to educational videos, encourage them to watch the videos at home, share their insights via email, and subsequently engage in class discussions.

To illustrate the practical application of blended learning, here are a few examples:


Traditional Face-to-Face Approach

Blended Learning Approach

Group Project Collaboration

Learners meet in a physical classroom to collaborate

Learners utilize online channels such as messengers, online communities, and task managers to plan and coordinate their group project work. They also leverage file-sharing services like Google Docs for collaboration and feedback sharing.

Foreign Language Conversation Practice

Learners engage in face-to-face discussions in pairs/groups

In addition to classroom conversations, learners utilize online platforms for text and voice chat (e.g., Discord) to further practice their foreign language skills.


Written essays, mid-term tests, and final exams

Learners' progress is assessed through a combination of activity statistics, online quizzes/tests, submission of digital assignments, and participation in peer reviews.

Types of Blended Learning Models

Blended learning offers a range of flexible models that combine traditional classroom training with online learning components. Here are five commonly used blended learning frameworks:
  1. Flipped Model

    In the flipped classroom model, the traditional learning approach is inverted. Learners independently consume assigned content online, allowing in-person class time to focus on interactive activities like discussions, case studies, or group projects.
  2. Face-to-Face Driver Model

    The face-to-face driver model closely resembles traditional classroom training. Learners primarily engage in classroom sessions guided by an instructor, providing personalized support to address any challenges and ensure understanding of new concepts.
  3. Rotational Model

    In the rotational model, learners follow a fixed yet flexible schedule, rotating between self-paced online learning and face-to-face interactions. This allows learners to reinforce their knowledge through practice while enabling easier tracking of progress.
  4. Flex Model

    The flex model offers learners a personalized and adaptable learning experience tailored to their needs. Online learning takes the lead, providing core content, while instructors offer support in small-group settings. Learners can customize their learning paths and schedules.
  5. Enriched Virtual Model

    The enriched virtual model, similar to the flex model, places online training at the forefront. Learners engage in scheduled instructor-led classroom sessions, either physical or virtual, enriching the remote learning experience by facilitating learner-instructor interaction through online platforms.

Zilliobit’s Approach to Blended Learning

At Zilliobit, we understand that blended learning thrives on finding the right combinations of methodologies, embracing elements like community, autonomy, online and offline approaches, and leveraging design and data.
