Blended learning and skills development in companies

The blended learning is one of the means available to companies to set up skills development programmes for their employees. Fifty In this context, the European Commission proposes an innovative method based on digital technology and artificial intelligence, but which requires the active participation of learners in order to optimise the results: eDoing.

Principles and benefits of blended learning

The blended learning is also known as blended or hybrid training. In practice, this educational formula is a mix between e-learning and face-to-face training, which requires the presence of learners.

The success of the concept is due to the fact that learners are usually involved in the process of acquiring or developing skills, thus increasing their chances of successful development. This method requires a high level of involvement on the part of the learners, which makes it possible to combine theory and practice perfectly.

The lessons and exercises given online are used to acquire knowledge. The face-to-face sessions are the best time to practice, but also to meet other participants and exchange with them on the different aspects of the training or what has been learned, and to discuss with the trainers and ask them questions if necessary.

There is no fixed model and the formula can be modified at will to favour theory or practice or to have a good balance between the two. It can be customised to suit the objectives and all resources are easily accessible from the e-learning platform.

On the learner's side, this method of acquiring or developing skills requires him or her to put everything at his or her disposal into acquiring knowledge and making the most of his or her personal abilities. Finally, this teaching approach allows each individual to progress at his or her own pace, as the e-learning modules can be managed for this purpose.

Fifty, an innovative method

Fifty provides companies with an innovative method similar to the blended learning and the Action de Formation En Situation de Travail (AFEST) which will enable them to provide their employees with an original method of acquiring or developing skills. Our eDOING approach is based on encouraging employees to perform one or more actions each day that will eventually become a habit. The "micro-actions" are offered on our platform and are part of an entire learning path.

To develop our "learning" system, we were inspired by Nudge. This concept created by the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics Richard Thaler aims to encourage people to modify their behaviour according to situations and/or to adopt relevant choices that contribute to their personal or professional development without fear of reprisals. We have combined Nudge with artificial intelligence to maximise the impact of the process.

In practice, the micro-actions will be used by the AI to set up a personalised course adapted to the participants' objectives. The programme targets both technical and soft skills. The results will be measured in real time to monitor the learner's progress and evaluate the changes obtained. And throughout the course, the AI will suggest actions to be taken according to the progress made.
