Engaging eLearning, i.e. eLearning that makes the audience actively participate and pay attention, is an art all of its own. The Top Rules of Engaging eLearning Infographic presents the rules for creating engaging eLearning content.
1. Know Your Audience
Ask yourself these questions: Who are they? What do they like? How do they spend their time? How do they like to communicate? How do they like to receive communication? What annoys them?
2. Know Your Topic
It takes half a second to realize that the author of a course knew nothing about their topic. Engage subject matter experts and ask all the questions that you think might come up in the training.
3. Keep It Organized
The topics that are covered in an eLearning course should be relevant to the course itself. Headings and subheadings should clearly describe what the learner can expect to read, gather and gain from the content.
4. Keep It Simple
When creating an eLearning course, use clear and simple language and stay away from jargon.
5, Keep It Interactive
Interaction is import to retain your users. Note, though, that while interaction is good, too much interaction can be distracting.
6. Keep It Short
The maximum attention of a human being is not quite as much as we would like it to be, therefore, keep the courses short.
7. Keep It Relevant
Most boring courses are the result of the content not being relevant to the learner. Even if you build simple compliance training, there’s a way to make it relevant. Talk to your learners and find out how they use the compliance information. Then place the course in a context where it makes sense for the learner.
8. Free Up The Navigation
People like to explore and experiment. It helps them build context. Locked navigation doesn’t allow this.
