Blended learning will revitalize the training market, claims a survey by blended soft-skills training specialist Balance Learning. It questioned 173 HR professionals and line managers and found that 23 per cent of organizations now deliver more than half of their training provision through blended learning. This is expected to grow to 35 per cent by 2005. Half the firms are using blended learning for their IT training and a further ten per cent expect to adopt it in the next 12 months.
