Blended Learning divides the training between an online FARO Academy course that customers are expected to take before attending in-person instructor led training. See the illustration below:
Enhancing Customer Training through Blended Learning
In today's dynamic business landscape, effective customer training is paramount to ensuring product understanding, user satisfaction, and overall success. Blended learning, a combination of traditional classroom methods and online resources, has emerged as a powerful strategy to optimize customer training.
Flexible Learning Styles
Blended learning accommodates diverse learning styles, allowing customers to engage with content at their own pace. This flexibility caters to different learning preferences, ensuring a more personalized and effective training experience (Garrison & Vaughan, 2008).
Integrating online components reduces the need for extensive in-person training sessions, cutting down on travel and accommodation expenses. This cost-effective approach is particularly advantageous for organizations with a geographically dispersed customer base (Bonk & Graham, 2006).
Online resources provide customers with 24/7 access to training materials, enabling them to revisit content as needed. This accessibility fosters continuous learning and ongoing skill development, contributing to long-term customer success (Means et al., 2013).
Interactive Learning Opportunities
Blended learning allows for the incorporation of interactive elements such as quizzes, simulations, and discussion forums. These features enhance engagement and knowledge retention by promoting active participation in the learning process (Clark & Mayer, 2016).
