Creating Engaging eLearning Courses

Over the past couple of years huge amounts of people are now taking eLearning and digital training from home, therefore it is more important than ever to ensure your learners have an interesting and engaging experience.

Below are some things you can add to your eLearning courses to make it engaging for learners.

1. Branching Scenarios

Branching Scenarios are one thing you can add to your eLearning courses to make it more dynamic and interactive. Branching Scenarios involve breaking up your course into multiple different paths that your learner can take. When a learner takes your eLearning course you ask the learner to make decisions or answer questions, depending on how they answer they are taken down a branch which contains one or more screens. The benefit of using Branching Scenarios is that it gets the learner to think about what they have learned, make a decision and then see the consequences of that decision.

2. Click and Reveal Screens

Click and reveal screens involve breaking up content into multiple smaller chunks and having the learner click on different areas of the screen to reveal content. This type of slide works well when you have screens with a lot of content, instead of the learner reading walls of text or listening to audio they are able to digest the information in smaller bite sized chunks. The benefit of using this type of slide is that it provides an additional layer of interactivity as the learner has to interact with the screen.

3. Graded Quizzes

Another way to add engagement to your courses is to add a graded quiz to the end of your course. When a learner takes your eLearning course, they may have covered a wide variety of topics and as a result by the time they reach the end of the course they may forget some of the things they have learned. One way you can help to reinforce learning and add engagement is to have a graded quiz at the end of your course. This type of quiz uses knowledge check questions with points assigned to it, at the end of the quiz the results are calculated and based on how much the learners have scored they may need to retake the quiz again or can complete the course.
