When modernising such an elaborate portfolio in a fun and original way whilst providing online and offline training methods, one has to pay attention to what the courses are intended for. A training aimed at building knowledge should be classified differently than one intended to improve practical skills.
For mastering theoretical knowledge, theMemoTrainer function in aNewSpring can be very helpful. However, for extending a practical skill set, the Blended Learning approach is often better suited (see the How to Become a Blended Learning Chef ebook). Every trainee can improve his or her knowledge in advance, resulting in more efficient classroom sessions. These sessions can, in turn, be succeeded by online recaps. In this way, the training will remain effective longer.
The method of modernising the courses varies based on their purpose and complexity. Simple, theoretical lessons are mostly provided through online learning whereas more difficult courses are usually taught using the Blended Learning method. In the end, every course needs to be informative, effective and appealing while also allowing trainees their own personalised learning path. To do so, the instructor needs to decide what vision he or she wants to project.
