Blended Learning e-learning Infographic Insights Study

E-Learning Paints a Pretty Picture – Infographic

The US Government has researched all the studies carried out on e-learning effectiveness over the past few years. We thought the report was a little on the heavy side, so for your benefit, we have made it more digestible in the form of a CDSM infographic.

Here’s the proof that e-learning kicks pass rates:

Text version of Infographic – e-Learning Paints a Pretty Picture

We put a Department of Education report through our infographic-o-whizz 9000. Out popped the most important points to power up your training, from a big review of all the studies done on e-learning.

Scope:

In the studies on e-learning effectiveness:

Learner groups ranged 16 to 1,857 people.

5 studies had 400+ learners.

Average learner age: 13 to 44.

Roughly half of the learning was academic. The remainder included professional development.

Most common subject area: Medical.

Other subjects: computer science, teacher training, social science, mathematics, languages, science and business.

At least 29 studies lasted more than a month.

Effects:

50 independent effects were scrutinised.

Of these, 11 were significantly positive for online or blended learning (using both online and face-to-face training).

Effects Boosting Learning Results:

Letting learners control their own interactions with media

Prompting learner reflection

Learners self-monitoring understanding

More collaborative opportunities

Extra learning materials

Additional learning time*

*Online learning tends to expand time spent on learning more than face-to-face training.

2 Big Lessons

On average:

Learners in online learning did slightly better than those with face-to-face instruction.

Learners using blended learning out-performed those with face-to-face instruction alone.
