Making eLearning Stick: A Free Webinar on Instructional Design Strategies
If you’re tired of learners falling victim to the forgetting curve, do something about it. Register for a free webinar on instructional strategies to make eLearning stick.
“What is your most memorable learning experience?” We posed this question during the session on eLearning instructional design strategies at our customer-exclusive event ‘LearnFlux 2020’ and got a variety of answers. Learning to drive, horse riding lesson, a lesson from a favorite teacher through a role-playing exercise, a shared anecdote that was inspiring, an accident with a bitter unforgettable lesson – these were among the answers from our attendees. So, what’s common in these seemingly unrelated learning moments?
This Free Webinar on Sticky eLearning Instructional Strategies talks about:
- Elements of Learning
- What is eLearning and What is NOT eLearning
- Popular New-age Instructional Design Strategies
- Best Practices for Designing Learner-centric eLearning
- Interactive Q&A session
Well… as it happens, all these lessons were imprinted in people’s memory because of something that made a powerful impact, be it through the adrenaline rush of doing something adventurous, a humorous lesson that made them laugh, or something that connected to them emotionally.
Are you wondering how any of this is connected to how you design your eLearning? Well… what if you could take a cue from these answers and come up with instructional design strategies that will have the same impact on your employees? Wouldn’t it be great if your learners could remember everything they learn during training? It will surely make all the training efforts and dollars well spent if we could just beat the forgetting curve.
So, we have a webinar coming up where I will be talking about instructional design strategies that can help eLearning stick in learners’ minds.
What to Expect from this Free Webinar on Sticky eLearning Instructional Design Strategies
1. Elements of Learning
All learning can be categorized under three heads – Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes (KSA). And corporate training is no exception!
- Knowledge: Information required to perform a task
- Skills: The application of that knowledge
- Attitudes: The way we look at things
Based on this, we can categorize learning as knowledge-based, skill-based, and attitudinal, or behavior-based. Regardless of the category, if we want our learning interventions to be successful, we need to consciously apply certain essential elements and principles of effective learning.
If you want to know how to incorporate these elements into your eLearning design, register for our free webinar!
2. What is eLearning & What is NOT eLearning
eLearning can be defined as ‘learning facilitated by technology’ for its design, development, delivery, administration, and evaluation. Having defined what it is, it is equally important to define what it is not.
So, what is NOT eLearning?
- Publishing a PowerPoint slide deck to HTML
- Adding audio to a PowerPoint slide deck and uploading it online
- A web page, eBook, video, or PDF
Contrary to popular belief, eLearning is much more than just adding audio to PowerPoint presentations and publishing them online. In eLearning, the absence of the instructor has to be compensated through a well-designed instructional strategy in the course. And how do you do that? You guessed it, join our webinar!
3. Popular New-age Instructional Design Strategies
If you were to ask, “Is there a fixed way to train learners?” the answer would be, “No”. Training approaches, methods, and strategies have evolved a lot over the years, along with changing corporate learner profiles, training requirements, and technological advances. In this day and age, it is not enough to just make information available to learners, you also need to ensure that the instruction can hook their attention, engage them throughout training, and make an impact powerful enough that the knowledge is not lost after the training is over.
Sounds like a tough challenge? Yes, it is, but we’ll be discussing some very popular and engaging instructional strategies in the webinar and if you want in, hurry up and register for it.
4. Best Practices to Design Learner-centric eLearning Courses
Despite our best efforts, oftentimes with budgets, time constraints, and stakeholders’ demands, your eLearning design can fall short in addressing learners’ requirements. Therefore, it is very important to consciously make the eLearning courses learner-centric. And it is not as difficult as it sounds, you might be already implementing some of the measures unconsciously. Something as basic as framing performance-based learning objectives that are aligned to business goals or choosing the right authoring tool based on training requirements can make a tremendous difference.
We’ll be talking about 10 such best practices to follow during eLearning design and development. Want to know what they are? Well…go ahead and register for the webinar.
5. Answers to All Your Queries
This webinar is not going to be a one-sided conversation with just me talking. It’s going to be an interactive session and you’re more than welcome to put forward your questions and queries and we’ll answer them all during the Q&A part.
