You’ve heard this repeatedly, but it is true. If learners aren’t paying attention, they aren’t going to learn.
For effective corporate learning, whether it is instructor lead, video, self-guided, or custom eLearning, you must: make it engaging; use the right methodology; and connect the dots for the learner.
- Add audio and video to the content
Adding video to eLearning courses is a sure way of increasing engagement. It combines texts, images and sounds to create an immersive learning environment. Rich Audios and Videos are fast becoming the de facto' choice for eLearning.
- Make quizzes after short part of material
The Richardson blog post talks about how quizzes can be used to motivate people to "want to" learn. Quizzes in eLearning can be used to motivate learners, help them remember what they learned, and assess what they learned. Research shows us this and can be used to our advantage, if we follow a few simple principles mentioned above to make quizzes more effective.
- Offer immediate feedback to allow learners to learn from mistakes
eLearning provides the best environment for making mistakes. The best part is that a learner can take all the bad decisions there are, without your organisation having to suffer any consequences in terms of reputation or costs.
Organisations can take this opportunity to provide constructive feedback to mitigate these mistakes being repeated in real life situations.
- Add gamification techniques
Gamification is a winner because humans are innately competitive and like to win and see progress. It is one of the best types of learning, because it takes adults back to play and learning which we all did as children and the retention rate is higher.
- Linking training back to on the job performance
By aligning training content with the business structure and learner needs, which includes developing a rich learning environment, organisations can create content that delivers meaningful information and enables learners to retain information and ultimately perform at a higher level. This is a win for the employee and a big win for the business.
A culture of engaged learning builds employee confidence and, in return, employees recognise company’s investment into their development. This translates to higher work performance and creates an ongoing upward performance and business growth cycle.
