VILT and Blended Learning for Corporate Training

VILT Blended Learning

VILT stands for Virtual Instructor-Led Training. It refers to a form of remote learning where an instructor delivers training or education live online using video conferencing software, learning management systems, and other digital tools to facilitate the learning process.

In VILT, the instructor and learners interact in real-time, and learners can participate in the training from anywhere with an internet connection.

VILT is often used for synchronous training, where all learners participate at the same time and the instructor can provide immediate feedback and guidance. It has become increasingly popular as a way to deliver remote training and education, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is Blended Learning?

Blended Learning is an approach to education and training that combines online learning with traditional in-person instruction, creating a hybrid learning experience. In a blended learning environment, learners may engage in self-paced online modules, virtual classrooms, or other online learning activities, followed by in-person workshops, group discussions, or other types of face-to-face instruction.

The goal of blended learning is to leverage the benefits of both online and in-person learning to create a more engaging and effective learning experience. The online portion of blended learning can provide flexibility, convenience, and self-paced learning, while the in-person portion can provide opportunities for collaboration, discussion, and hands-on learning.

Blended learning can take many different forms, depending on the specific learning objectives, the needs of the learners, and the available resources and technology. Some blended learning models may include a mix of online and in-person instruction over the course of a semester, while others may use a rotation model, where learners alternate between online and in-person instruction on a daily or weekly basis.

Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) can be a valuable component of a blended learning approach, offering several benefits that can enhance the overall learning experience.

Here are some of the benefits of using VILT in blended learning:


VILT allows learners to participate in live online sessions from anywhere with an internet connection, offering greater flexibility than traditional in-person training.


VILT can be more cost-effective than traditional in-person training, as it eliminates the need for travel, accommodations, and other associated expenses.


VILT sessions can provide opportunities for interaction between learners and instructors in real-time, allowing for questions, discussion, and feedback.


VILT sessions can be tailored to the specific needs of learners, with instructors able to adapt their approach and content to meet individual learning styles and preferences.
