Abstract

Organizations today are faced with the challenges of expanding their traditional classroom-based approaches into blended learning experiences which integrate regular classrooms, virtual classrooms, social learning, independent reading, on the job learning and other methodologies. Our team converted a two-day classroom-based program, taught from 2010–2013 through the Canadian Organization Development Institute (CODI), into an on-line offering. We used several leading edge technologies, without sacrificing the power of face-to-face training. In this article we will highlight the lessons learned and the best practices that ensured the program’s success.
