1. Cost-friendly Approach - it saves the cost of the companies to a considerable extent as it provides reduced training costs in the form of less facilitator fees, less classroom expenses and reduced travel and accommodation expenses.

2. Bringing Two World Together - It is one of the best benefits of blended learning as this approach brings the best of both the worlds that is offline and online learning space. Besides it also allows the employees to derive a learning space at their own pace thereby backing their motivation and engagement levels at all time. It is the online and offline face to face interaction that helps to foster critical thinking skills in employees. Hence, it is because digital and real world learning comes together that employees find guidance and are able to learn effectively with the help of this new approach.

3. Trainee’s Command over Individual learning - Employees are allowed to read the materials at their own pace. Whenever they need, they can even access the contents online at their ease in their mobile or laptop and finding endless resources as and when they wish to refer them. And when traditional face-to face interaction is used offline it gives them the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice in real world.

4. Cost Effective Solution - As already mentioned, in blended learning approach the best of both the world are brought together. Here in this approach, learners no longer have to think about deriving best content and training facility at high price. When course material is available online, the travel time of students is saved as they do not need to travel to their training institute always for the course material. Corporates can also make use of some free educational technologies to train their employees and this would again imply reduced cost on the part of the organization.

5. Allows Greater Retention - Multimedia and offline interaction help learners’ grasp concepts much better due to rich learning experience and repeat of concepts. Practice activities, feedback from trainers and comments from trainees make the learning environment absorbing and engaging. And with good retain-ability, students are able to apply the knowledge in practical life situations.

6.  Enhanced Communication Skills - Students become a member of a community both virtual and real where they can provide their feedback and also respond to other feedback too. This helps them improve their interaction level with other employees. In addition, during the course of training they will learn to use various kind of educational technologies. They can later use such experience of using modern technology at work say while they have to video conference or conduct an online meeting with clients or with other officials.
