Adding interactivity to your eLearning

Over the years eLearning has changed, now more then ever it is important that you provide your learners with an experience that is engaging as well as educational.

Below are some ways you can add interactivity to your eLearning to provide a better learning experience for your learners.

1. Animated On-screen Elements

A quick way to add interactivity to your course is to apply animations to onscreen elements in your course. When using eLearning authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline, Lectora or Captivate most of the time they will come with the option to add animations to on screen elements such as text, images or buttons. Typically these animations will include options such as Fade In, Fly In, Float In etc. If you have a lot of text you can apply these animations to individual paragraphs or bullets, this can then be timed with audio narration.

2. Knowledge Check Questions

Another way you can add interactivity to your eLearning course is to use Knowledge Check Questions. Knowledge Check Questions are questions that are asked periodically throughout an eLearning course and gets the learner to reflect on what they have just learned. This doesn’t just have to be a multiple-choice question, you can get creative and have questions such as matching-pair questions were the learner has too match two answers as a pair or drag-into-order questions in which the learner has to drag a list of answers into the correct order.

3. Click and Reveal Slides

If you have a slide with a lot of text one way to break up this slide is to turn it into a click-and-reveal slide. These types of slides breakup the content on the slide into smaller chunks. On the screen the learner will typically be presented with several buttons or clickable hotspots, when the learner clicks on one of these they are presented with some content, once they have read the content they then move onto the next clickable area. The benefit of this is that it helps to keep the learner engaged and helps break learning content into smaller bite sized chunks.
