Pre Planning

Get to know your students.
"Instructor needs to acquire some basic information about the class as a whole" (Simonson, et al., 2012, p. 219)
Understand social and cultural backgrounds of the learners.
What pieces of technology will be used?
Create an area for feedback. How will it be gathered?
Plan and develop which portions will be used for online and which will be used during face-to-face time.
Don't forget ADDIE!
Enhance Current Program
Discussion Boards
- Due to poor communication, discussion boards online will enhance the current program by allowing the learners to give thought when answering questions online. Also, "Students need to have a sense of community within their classes" (Simonson, et al., 2012, p. 230)
Time Aspect
- Online curriculum will allow learners to start, stop, and possibly go back if information is missed.
- Discussions are required, thus, allowing the facilitator to gather feedback from "all learners" and "not just the ones that raise their hands".
- Uploading all resources onto the server will allow learners a greater level of accessibility.
Role Change
The trainer now changes to a facilitator and instructional designer.
Not only is he or she providing information, but now facilitating content, discussions, and relationships between students. Facilitator must show that they care about the success of the learner. (Laureate Education, Inc., n.d.)
Must effectively design which areas will utilize the face-to-face time and which information will be placed online. The success of the program is critical on balancing these two things.
Encourage Communication
Two Options

Use a
grading system
and require all trainees must receive a specific grade or higher to pass program. Grading must contain a rubric which outlines what is required to meet the standards for passing. A syllabus should be provided to instruct learners of the goals and objectives.

Rewards or Incentives.
Providing trainees with these incentives will increase communication if done correctly. "Workplace motivators include both monetary and non-monetary incentives". Creating "a balance between monetary and non-monetary incentives should be used to satisfy the diverse needs and interests of associate" (Ballentine, A., McKenzie, N., Wysocki A., Kepner, K., n.d.) Breaking into groups and creating a sense of competition between peers will strengthen communication as well as build relationships between employees.
