The costs and benefits of Blended Learning are difficult to quantify due to the large number of variables involved.
Hence, compared to traditional education (which requires a team of highly paid instructors, fully equipped labs, full-time staff to coordinate scheduling of employees, instructors, lab facilities, travelling costs of employees, costs of missed working days because of trainings, etc) Blended Learning is a much more cost-efficient method.
Such as a company assessment showed that printed course materials like textbooks and lab manuals are also very expensive, often representing an extra 10-30% of the course costs.
eLearning implies several of the following advantages which all result in cost-efficiency and cost reductions:
- The employees do not have to show up in the classroom (the company doesn’t have to undertake expensive travelling costs, as well as all the costs of missed days from work).
- The employees can study by themselves, using their free time in a more flexible and useful way.
- Employees have to be up to date with constantly changing information: the fastest and cheapest way for that is eLearning.
- eLearning is a cost efficient tool to support the implementation and integration of new technologies, as well.
- It’s easy to reach economies of scale: the greater the number of participants, the greater the probability that economies of scale will make eLearning an attractive proposition from a cost perspective.
- Companies have all necessary ICT infrastructure: in many ways it is also the capabilities provided by the information and communication technology that helps us achieve many of the benefits from eLearning.
- Re-use and modularization: learning objects and reuse of learning material can be an important benefit from the eLearning programs. They will help reduce the fixed costs by four means: reuse, rapid production, ease of updating and cost-effective pedagogy.
- eLearning assures better, faster and cheaper administration than classroom training.
