Making your e-learning modules more engaging
This blog summarizes the key points from our webinar on building rich interactions, that are key to engaging your audience.
Learners don’t always want to sit through a formal training course. Often, they have neither time nor patience to be on the receiving end of a lengthy training monologue.
Interactive e-learning courses, on the other hand, make the learning process much more fun and engaging for your employees – while at the same time maximizing their learning outcomes.
For you as a learning professional, the question then remains how to create interactive e-learning modules which actively encourage participation and stickiness.
During the webinar, we showed how you can do that by using so-called rich interactions. In particular, we discussed:
Simple methods for making your courses as engaging as possible;
Free and intuitive platforms which you can pair with Easygenerator;
Effective ways to build rich interactions without the need for advanced instructional design knowledge.
