Jane Hart recently conducted an online poll about the meaning of the term, “blended learning.” Only half of the 750 respondents said they think of blended learning as “a training programme containing a mix of face-to-face-and e-learning.” This prompted me to discuss the term e-learning itself, a term that has always seemed ambiguous to me.
What at are your thoughts on using these terms, and others like social learning or experiential learning, to refer to organized efforts by those of us in the training industry? Is it appropriate to continue with this practice? What are the alternatives? We would love to hear what you think.
