Blended learning

Linked, intuitive learning as in everyday life

‘Blended’ as in ‘mixed’. Many consider blended learning a simple mix of different educational content and learning elements. However, the course designers behind CREATE have the mindset that blended learning is a highly useful concept of learning that answers various questions and creates integrated solutions.

A CREATE blended learning concept answers the following questions:

Was sind die Lernziele? Dabei unterscheiden wir Grob- und Feinlernziele.

Wer ist die Zielgruppe? Was hat diese Lernzielgruppe für besondere Eigenschaften?

In welchen Situationen lernt die Zielgruppe? Wann lernt sie und wo (auch informell)?

Welche möglichen digitalen Devices kann die Zielgruppe nutzen? PC, Smartphone, Unterlagen?

Was sind bestehende Lerninhalte, Möglichkeiten und Formate?

Welche Gamification und Motivationsfaktoren können eine Rolle spielen?

Wie wird der Lernerfolg gemessen (KPI’s)?

Blended learning is harmonised perfectly towards the learning goals and specific scenarios of the target audience, in which several formats, at different times but also intensity, come into play. The cBook provides CREATE customers with a suitable carrier and learning medium from learning to working that reaches beyond the initial program.

Traditional training, e-learning contents, and webinars that interplay at different levels but also connect types of learning with technologies. A blended learning concept has the potential to do much more. The final learning scenario shows where you want to go and what goals should be attained; this is often connected to changes, a new approach to learning, and potentially a general cultural change.

Ganzheitlich denken und nachhaltig gestalten!

A Focus on learning goals and skill profiles

The individual blended learning, its related educational content, as well as the structure and use of the material, orients itself on the learning outcomes and needs of the target audience. Skill profiles can be created to be geared towards learning elements and with it, create skill-oriented learning. (link)

B Composition of learning forms and technologies:

Blended learning combines various types of learning like online elements and offline training. Both forms can integrate multiple technologies (cBook, Mr Fish, virtual reality, links) as well as learning elements (interactions, coaching, or skill questions).

C Composition of blended learning adapted to learning dramaturgy:

CREATE develops original dramaturgy for each blended learning that is adapted to the learning elements. Because e-learning that comes before traditional training has a different impact to e-learning that comes after offline training. The correct order is developed according to the suspense curve and the storytelling:

The suspense curve at CREATE

Each suspense curve is divided into a beginning, a middle, and an end. Each beginning, like every other story, must pick up and motivate the learner. The middle brings the majority of the content to a turning point, that is most often the offline training. In the end, a transfer exercise will pick up the thread and tie in with the suspense curve.

Benefits:

  • Holistic approach
  • Linking learning goals and groups, as well as educational content, with the environment
  • Individual and specific adjustment to the target groups
  • Structured design and monitoring of learning projects
  • Consideration of change processes and learning culture
