succeed in business. To achieve this, we have adapted a blended learning
model where we make use of several methods that simplifies the entire
“One of our methods is instructor learning which is achieved via recorded
videos addressing specific sub-topics under the subject area for the month,
Live classes with experts to answer burning questions you might have and
“worksheets/templates for guidance,” she said.
The school also uses peer-to-peer learning in its online community where
fellow learners can teach each other ideas that have worked for them and
build on the belief that to teach is to learn twice and most importantly
the use of case studies.

ground to respond to any questions learners have which can be communicated
in the comment section of each lesson,” s/he said.
