Interactivity in eLearning refers to opportunities for learners to interact with a course in terms of action and thinking. Also, helps them to be engaged and motivated throughout the course. Interactive eLearning can be divided into two types, depending on the purpose for which it is used.

  • To teach
  • To assess

To Teach

Incorporating interactivity into your eLearning course is an important step in creating deeper, more engaging experiences for your learners. Interactive lessons are often less content-heavy than traditional lessons, but they still help learners develop a deeper understanding of the content. These interactivities help learners learn by including opportunities to explore, manipulate, or interact with concepts. Interactivities also offer multiple representations of information to support different learning styles and abilities.
