We highlighted the 4 main benefits of blended learning: less financial burden, users can learn where and when they choose, more opportunities for engagement, and organizations can gather insights from analytics. Blended learning follows the idea of meeting the learner where they like to learn, by using a variety of modalities. This allows for higher engagement rates as users are in control of their own learning experience, creating personalized #elearning. #Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2X3gCfE  #ApplePodcasts: https://apple.co/2Xl1BWt  #GooglePlay: https://bit.ly/3bNANSz  #Anchor: https://bit.ly/39ynl3K
