How virtual & hybrid classrooms are transforming distance learning


How virtual & hybrid classrooms are transforming distance learning

12 Feb 2020
Theatre 4

Learning and Development departments are facing a challenge. Expectations are rising, yet their budgets are only rising in line with inflation. The time, cost of travel and the sustainability factor are creating greater pressure to deliver training online. 14% of all formal learning hours are now delivered as real-time distance learning classes and there is a growing trend towards instructor-led, virtual sessions. When offering long-distance learning, it is of major importance to avoid the trap of one-way communication if you don’t want to lose your students’ engagement.
The most forward-thinking business schools & learning academies are realizing that it’s vital to invest in new technologies to be able to deliver courses in a way that works with students’ lives, which meets their always-rising expectations and, most importantly, to bring in valuable new revenue streams and facilitate further growth and success.
In this session you will learn how Business Schools like IESE & ESSEC transformed their executive online programs & how corporate academies are choosing technologies that enable them to deliver an experience close to an in-classroom experience, while saving cost & be more sustainable.
