Slide 10:

Compared to what? Higher up-front development costs can be recouped over time via much lower delivery costs, or even zero delivery costs in some cases.

Slide 13:

The strongest objections to blended learning are… “We don’t know enough about it.” FEAR of making a bad decision the "change is bad" mentality. www.practiceICAOenglish.com

Slide 14:

Plenty of language skills practice to support classroom training. More flexibility – students can study anytime, anywhere Students can repeat lessons as often as they need What is the purpose of E-learning for aviation English? www.practiceICAOenglish.com The course must deliver EXACTLY the right language skills required – so learners can apply their new knowledge directly to their work.
