What is Blended Learning?

Classroom Training


Classroom Training

Cannot sustain quality while scaling

Hard To Scale

Due to limited number of high quality teachers

Less Expensive

Due to lack of advanced training tools such as experiential training, multimedia content

Not Self-paced Learning

Due to fixed schedules, inability to access teacher and/or content at flexible timings

Online Training


Online Training

Cannot be interactive enough to sustain interest and learning

Lacks Guidance

Without access to trainer

Mostly Adhoc Learning

That is not structured per any curriculum and limited

Casual Learning

Meant more for casual learning and referencing and less for definite learning outcome, such as certification

Online training is not interactive and not sufficiently linked to outcomes like certification and job placements


Scaling is hard in classroom model given the paucity of passionate and quality trainers

Online training does not sustain interest with 92% of courses not getting completed because it lacks guidance without access to trainer
