Let’s admit it! eLearning is the need of the hour. With the global workforce transitioning to the hybrid mode, eLearning is becoming the preferred training strategy of most organizations. It seems easy but creating meaningful eLearning courses is challenging.

It calls for well-defined learning objectives and right instructional design strategies in place.
So, how do we make eLearning more engaging and relevant for learners? Well, here are some awesome tips that can help you design eLearning courses to ensure your learners have an immersive learning experience.
