Blended and online learning can make learning programmes more budget and time efficient and improve their effectiveness where it counts viz. the workplace. We apply a structured methodology to blended and online programme design, to make sure that programmes meet the objectives of the organization and of the individual.
The methodology is used by the training designer to build the structure of each course, based on the desired outcomes, the needs of the delegates and the optimum delivery methods.

- Word documents
- PDF documents
- Web pages
- Image files (JPG, GIF, PNG)
Surveys and reinforcement
Interactive sections can include questions, to capture objectives, gauge attitudes and assess training needs. When used with post-submission responses, these allow the designer to test the delegate’s understanding and reinforce key messages.
Validation and evaluation
Each course can include any number of validation sections. These may be informal or formal, with or without feedback of results.
The ability to schedule course modules is a key element of learnfusion. Scheduling ensures that course progression and formal management is applied to all training interventions, regardless of whether they include a workshop element.This allows each course to be given a time-based structure, including needs analysis, objective setting, action plans and reviews.Individual automatic email course invitations and reminders may be used in any course module for communication with the delegates.Material which is required to be permanently available can be added to the toolkit section, accessible via the home page.
Learnfusion allows the administrator to load courses and course dates, joining instructions and allocate trainers and venues.The administrator may then add delegates to scheduled programmes or allow users to book directly on to the course of their choice, selecting from an up to date list of available dates and locations.Courses can be booked anywhere and at any time, from any PC with internet access. Optionally, it can be a requirement that training managers or administrators need to approve attendance on the chosen course.
User management and reporting
Any number of user groups can be set up on the system and any user can be a member of any number of groups. Therefore users can be organised into departments, sites, teams, job families or competency levels. At a glance, you can review how each group is progressing for each module. You can also see details of each user’s usage of the system. You can review how assessment questions are being answered by the group.
