Custom eLearning courses can be built with varying strategies. One strategy that I have seen working is active learning, where we use a variety of interactivities to keep the learner engaged and hooked to the content. I will explore the same in this blog.
Various Methods of Engagement
In previous blogs, we have discussed how storytelling, scenarios, gamification, evidence-based methods, Q&A are effective strategies to engage the learners. In all strategies, one thing is for sure, we are looking for higher engagement levels as compared to standard click and learn kind of eLearning courses. The standard eLearning courses are no longer appealing to the learners as they don’t engage them enough. They may still go through the eLearning courses but would do so to complete them as per mandate and not with any seriousness.
So, a good way to keep learners engaged is through interactivities that have the question component and asks learners to perform a series of steps that takes them forward. Let’s look at the various types of interactivities.
