Looking for an e-learning training course?

Without a doubt, e-learning training is here to stay. As part of your training offering, e-learning should be part of your solution whether used as a blended method or complete solution. In the last two decades, there has been a rise of 900% in corporate e-learning. Another benefit for training companies and their customers is that while there has been a rise in demand, training costs have been cut by around 70%. With this is in mind, it is time to start looking for an e-learning training course for your business.

What to look for in an e-learning training course

  1. Immersive

If your training offering has primarily focuses on face to face training, then you may be sceptical about how e-learning can be as engaging. Using tools such as video-based e-learning or interactive environments can really help to create an immersive training environment. Whether your training is to encourage behaviour, teach a practical action or to simulate a practice environment.

  1. Content effectiveness

With the range of graphics, videos, podcasts and other innovative elements you can add, you may lose sight of what the training is all about. Content creation must be mastered as this is the backbone of how the structure, presentation and learning methods will work. There are many obstacles to overcome to ensure your students don’t become distracted.

Make sure to remove grammatical errors, distracting visuals and elaborate plots so that your students can stay focused.

  1. Accessibility

Learners should be able to use e-learning unsupervised. Make sure that you look for e-learning production that is clear and focused. Clear navigation is crucial, so discuss the type of navigation you feel is necessary with your e-learning production company.

Only use the essential navigation icons, too many can confuse your audience. As users are self-motivated in e-learning, consider the innovative usability heuristics to engage the audience.

Make your e-learning training stand out

Keep it simple. An e-learning production company is a great partner in your new e-learning creation as they have the experience and tools to create a stunning, simple and clear production, combined with your training objectives you can craft a unique approach.

Interactive Video-Based E-Learning Courses

E-Learning is progressing rapidly. It is taking training by storm for both training providers and businesses. We are beginning to see advanced e-learning training programmes that use videos and games to make the training more interactive and engaging. To give your training an edge, you need interaction. Here are our top tips on how to create the best interactive video-based e-learning courses.

Five tips to developing brilliant interactive video-based e-learning courses

  1. Timing

Timing is essential for creating great interaction during an e-learning course. Don’t simply add elements for the sake of using technology. Make sure that each component works well with the learner journey. Remember, if it doesn’t enhance the experience, it shouldn’t be included in the video. Sometimes, less is more.

  1. Consistent hot spots

You want to make sure your learners stay engaged throughout the training course, therefore it is important to make the process easy to follow. With a consistent user interface, the student knows what to look for to proceed to the next part of the training. However you let users control their e-learning, keep it consistent and fluid to maintain their interest.

  1. Compatibility

Not all learners will have access to the same equipment. Therefore, this means it is important that your training is ready to use on many devices. When creating your videos, make sure it is available for multi-device use. Considering almost half of videos are watched through a mobile application, it may be time to gear your training offering to mobile devices.

  1. Be relevant

Whatever sector or industry you offer training in, it is important that your videos include realistic scenarios that will relate to your learners. Likely or believable situations can help to make the training more powerful and easier to remember and engage with.

  1. Consider motivation

What will your training offer to keep people interacting? Don’t just consider your training goals. Discover how you will make learners progress through the training and comply with the objectives. Positive feedback, game mentality or storytelling can help people to remain focused throughout the training.
