A History of Blended Learning

When leading professors at the University of St. Gallen started to consider options for digital training in 2001, their primary purpose was to help students be better prepared before arriving for their first class at university. Over time, additional methods have been adopted to enrich the online learning experience such as eMentoring and discussion forums, ensuring that participants get the most out of their learning experience. More recently, we have explored options to reinforce learning beyond the initial learning moment (be it in class or digital) to ensure that knowledge is retained and applied in day-to-day business activities. So whether you are looking for a stand-alone online learning experience or a sophisticated blended learning solution for your management and leadership development programs, SwissVBS is ready to assist.
