Top 10 Findings: Early results of a Brandon Hall Research blended learning survey

April 2, 2007

A group of 65 learning professionals completed a new Brandon Hall Research survey on blended learning. At least 300 more responses are being collected to get a more accurate picture of blended learning but I did want to share some early results with you.

First, the background on the responding group: The respondent group is primarily corporate (66%) but also includes those working in government, non-profit, and education sectors. Respondents are evenly distributed among managers, designer/developers, and those responsible for delivering learning programs. Although the respondents are primarily US-based companies, there was a global mix of organizations responding along with several of the US-based organizations having an international presence. The size of respondent organizations varied greatly (900,000) as did the size of the department responsible for learning (1-5000).

Top 10 findings:

  1. 74% of respondent organizations currently design/deliver blended learning programs
  2. 68% of respondent organizations say blended learning is currently a high priority at their organization (71% increased BL in the past two years; 86% will increase BL in the next two years)
  3. 55% of respondent organizations said it takes more time to create a blended learning solution vs. an e-learning solution alone
  4. 83% of respondent organizations said it takes more time to create a blended learning solution than a face-to-face solution alone
  5. 89% of respondent organizations said blended instruction has better outcomes than e-learning alone
  6. 69% of respondent organizations said blended instruction has better outcomes than face-to-face instruction alone
  7. 44% of respondent organizations said blended learning is more expensive to produce than e-learning alone
  8. 69% of respondent organizations said blended learning is more expensive to produce than face-to-face instruction alone
  9. 63% of respondent organizations use blended methods on less than 25% of their total course offering
  10. 50% of respondent organizations use a model or rule-of-thumb for deciding on the blend
