Have you taken eLearning before?
There is no shortage of poorly designed ‘click to continue’ eLearning courses that evoke boredom or even dread. Courses that could have just as easily been put into a PDF and emailed but that have been stretched out to 30 minutes that force you to listen to someone reading the on-screen text before you can click to the next page. But it doesn’t have to be like this!
At ARC Learning, we encourage our clients to avoid such design pitfalls and engage learners using real-world challenges, and training best practices. In fact, we are often called in to ‘freshen up’ existing eLearning programs. eLearning doesn’t have to be boring. It can leverage video, animation, and, yes – even fun. The biggest mistake of ‘click to continue’ eLearning is lack of awareness (YouTube has been around for over a decade so why aren’t you using more of it) and lack of empathy with the learner (would you want to take this course if you were in their shoes?) We can do better!
