Addressing IT Training Challenges: How Learning Tree Harnesses the Benefits of Blended Learning in the Workplace

Del

Learning Tree International (OTCQX: LTRE) announced today its expansion of blended solutions to address two key learning challenges in IT training: notoriously low completion rates of self-paced learning, as well as the need for flexibility beyond a classroom event that includes anytime access to relevant content and other engaging learning tools. Learning Tree sees the benefits of blended learning in the workplace as a natural next step in training.

“With less than 20% completion rates of e-learning alone, we wanted to build something that capitalizes on the convenience of on-demand content, but not leave learners with no access to help when they need it most,” said Brian Simms, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Learning Tree. “We are using our own award-winning content, plus partner content, market research, and ongoing client feedback to build blended learning packages that offer learners optimal tools and resources for the way they want to learn.”

An example of adopting more than just e-learning or stand-alone classroom events, Learning Tree offers the popular ITIL Foundation Certification Training course with all four learning options shown, including bringing training to a client’s facility and the option of customizing content for specific case study use.

New blended learning options are also available for CompTIA Security+, Emotional Intelligence, Project Management, SQL Server, Microsoft Excel, and more.

As learning needs change over time, and with job roles and project teams shifting, those leading learning and development for organizations must be flexible in their approach to supporting employees, yet also focus on optimizing spend, along with tracking and reporting of results. Learning Tree’s new blended learning approach can support organizations in rapidly providing increased learning flexibility and options for their employees.

“While instructor-led is still viewed as the best way for applied learning, there are benefits of blended learning. We understand the pressures on organizations to upskill their employees, but to do so without impacting current productivity,” said Richard A. Spires, CEO at Learning Tree. “All learning is not created equal, and there is so much information available online today. Learning Tree provides organizations with flexible learning solutions that focus on practical approaches to supporting a learner’s journey to mastery.”
