Ways you can enhance your eLearning

When developing eLearning you will most likely use authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline, however, there are a number of things you can use in addition to traditional eLearning to make it more engaging and interactive for your learners.

1. VR

VR or Virtual Reality is a type of technology that you could utilise as part of your learning strategy. VR allows learners to access and interact with a virtual environment by using a headset. To create a VR course, you need to capture 360-degree images and videos and then use software to add interactions and navigation. The benefit to using VR over traditional eLearning is that you can create an immersive experience that is not possible with traditional eLearning. For example, Pathways has recently worked with ACCES to create a VR health and safety course that walks leaners through a construction site and has them identifying hazards they might experience on the job. With traditional eLearning it would be difficult to replicate this experience and helps learners gain experience before going onto a real site.

2. Scenarios

Another thing you can do to add interactivity to your eLearning course is to add scenarios. Scenarios are stories that closely replicate the types of situations learners would encounter on the job, learners are then able to interact with the scenario and make decisions and see the consequences of their choices. For example, you might have learners who are learning about the restaurant industry and using scenarios you can teach them about the types of challenges they would face in a kitchen setting.

3. Synchronised Text

In your eLearning course one of the main things you will most likely use is text. Text in an eLearning course can be a quick and effective way to teach your learners about a subject, however, it is important to keep in mind that it can quickly make your course stale. One way to keep learners engaged is to synchronise your text with audio narration which involves having your text (e.g. bullets, paragraphs etc.) appear on screen as it is being said in the narration, to add additional engagement you can apply animations such as Fade In, Fly In etc. to the text.
