Generally, a Blended Learning describes all forms of a didactical mix between online and offline components. Depending on the needs of the participants or their organisations it has to be possible to deliver the content in different ways:
- (1) Hand-Outs (to be printed and used offline);
- (2) Face-to-Face Training (uses all the prepared material);
- (3) CD-Rom Training.
The trainer and the organization can therefore decide about the form of delivery of the training.
From the ONEE/IEA comes the approach to implement future trainings in form of a «Blended Learning», especially those which are targeted for a participant group from the French-speaking African countries.
Following ONEE/IEAs «Cooperation triangulaire», the content of a training will first be provided to a large group of participants in their home countries using the e-Learning format. After the e-Learning courses and the online tests, a small group of successful and committed participants will then be invited to Rabat to join a specialized face-to-face training.
In-House Training is a form of Blended Learning, specialized to the needs and the demand of a certain utility and it's workmates. The demand may arise of the need to steer the participants presence at the workplaces or of special knowledge needs of the utility. Normally, an In-House training is used to get all participants to a similar level and then to continue the training with traditional form of learning.
In other cases, an In-House Training is used as a constant and growing base of knowledge in form of an interactive manual for the workmates.
