Don’t be Boring, Plan Your eLearning Course to Excite and Inspire

Memorable learning experiences lead to higher knowledge transfer and retention. In order to make the learning opportunity memorable, you should focus on adding an element of fun and excitement to your eLearning course. Put yourself in the shoes of your learner. What can make them excited? How can you make the training content less boring? What would you remember after walking away from this training? There are so many great ways for the eLearning module to excite and inspire: use great graphics, provide compelling scenarios, add multimedia content, allow for branching and varied learning paths, and so on. Remember this: the training outcome is much better when the trainee is showing a genuine interest in the content and the training process. The next time you are planning a training, don’t forget to think how to make it memorable, which in turn will have a huge impact on knowledge retention, performance and, ultimately, your bottom line.
