How Do You Make eLearning Engaging?

Oct 05, 2023 | News


At CCWA, we understand the importance of engaging online learners in order to optimize work performance outcomes. So, what makes eLearning engaging?

We know that interactive eLearning captures and retains the attention of participants through the use of a wide range of multimedia elements such as images, graphics, animations, video, and audio. Multimedia elements also bring the content to life and help put it in the proper context.

By answering the question, “What’s in it for me?,” engaging eLearning demonstrates its value and helps with motivation, which is a critical component of the Adult Learning Theory. Learners recognize that the training is well worth their time and effort when they understand the practical benefits of the training, as well as how to apply their newfound knowledge in real-life situations.

ELearning must also actively interact with participants, thereby requiring their full attention. CCWA’s interactive learning exercises help convey complex concepts, provide experiential learning opportunities, and assess the learner’s understanding of key concepts. These virtual formats must be thought provoking and require learners to exert some mental effort and challenge without being overwhelming. CCWA accomplishes this by empowering users to learn through discovery, prompting them to think about questions before responding, and by designing assessments that truly measure their progress.

Finally, in order to keep learners engaged, eLearning must make efficient use of the participants time by providing the necessary knowledge in a concise package. CCWA works closely with its client’s subject matter experts to purge extraneous content, packages the content in bite-size pieces, and utilizes multimedia elements to efficiently convey complex information.

CCWA is committed to creating eLearning that is interesting, valuable, interactive, thought provoking, and efficient.
