Learning improves when people are inquisitive, interested and inspired.

It is imperative to ensure that learning is introduced to your employees in a manner that gets them on board and excited to be a part of something that is going to generate personal growth as well as organisational growth.

Use a system that is user friendly and includes customised onboarding that reflects your organisation’s brand. It is important that you:

  1. Find your system and content champions.
  2. Create a shared understanding.
  3. Hold training events and generate excitement through competitions.
  4. Move important content to the LMS to drive usage.
  5. Incentivise learning through gamification and rewards.

  6. Here are some tips to help you get your learners to engage on your LMS:

    Use Micro Learning

    Delivering training material in quick, bite-sized chunks is the essence of microlearning. Generally, the microlearning process can span from a few seconds up to 15 minutes or more. Microlearning is becoming the preferred way to deliver content because, it capitalises on the short attention span of the average learner.

    Gamify the learning process

    According to research, there are more than 2 billion video game players worldwide. Gamification is one method to keep users engaged in an online environment. Often, it does not involve playing games at all but applies similar mechanics in a non-game context to engage users in solving problems and retaining content.

    Enable User-Generated Content

    Boost learner engagement by letting them capture and upload their own content to the LMS.

    Assess Online

    Online assessments provide tools such as automatic grading, results reports, and direct feedback, which can keep a learner engaged and motivated.

    Make Learning Mobile-Read

    Content should be delivered seamlessly to a learner’s device of choice, facilitating learning any time, any place.
