The second edition of the groundbreaking book Blended eLearning brings readers up-to-date on how far the exciting evolution of enterprise learning solution has come. The book provides a thorough and readable examination of the state of technology market segments that have become the backbone of many of today’s blended elearning solutions.

Since the first edition of Blended eLearning was introduced in 2002, enterprise-wide learning solutions are everywhere. But what hasn’t changed is the need of any training and development effort for a blended learning model.

In this book, authors Larry Bielawski and David Metcalf provide clear guidelines for how to optimize the mix of classroom instruction, online learning and workplace performance support tools— and maximize the total impact on human performance at the enterprise level.

The book covers a broad span of topics, including the scope and applications of elearning systems today, performance support tools, knowledge management systems, enterprise-scale blended elearning solutions, instructional systems design for blended elearning and more.

The fascinating case studies in blended elearning of Honeywell, 3Com University, Northrup Grumman and other organizations alone are worth the price of the book.

Trainers, managers and learning consultants will learn:
- What is the role of elearning today
- How knowledge management systems can be applied to blended elearning
- How to create a blended elearning process and infrastructure
- How to develop quality learning content
- And much more
