Earlier learning online was one of the modes of learning. But after Pandemic, Learning Online has become “The Mode of Learning” for Professionals, Students, etc.
And now thousands of people are registering for an online course every day in some or another e-learning platform.
This has created the need of designing an effective and interactive e-learning course to attract learners.
This article lists down key techniques created, used, and shared by e-learning experts.
Technique 1: Learning Bites
Create a very short course where a learner learns in a short span of time. Let’s say, a simple short video/text should be able to explain a complex process/information in a simplified manner where the learner learns in just a few minutes. This is also easy for the learner to remember.
Technique 2: Analyzing through Video
Play a video clipping and ask the learner to answer the questions/find out the error. This helps them to get involved and self-check their understanding.
Technique 3: Infographics
Infographics help the learner comprehend the data easily. It also reduces the boredom of repeatedly seeing the words and numbers.
Technique 4: Dialogue Simulations
It a quite an old technique but yet it’s useful to learn through conversations. This feature really helps to introduce the situation/topic/solve a problem etc.
Technique 5: Just One Page
Put all your info on just one page. Thereby the learner need not click several times to navigate for learning. This would ensure the learner read the complete information.
Technique 6: Use Games
Technology users got so much exposure to games, we could use this exposure for learning as well. Create game-like features in your course. The learner will get very much interested in learning the course.
Technique 7: Interactive step by step process
To explain the process, we can use the interactive step-by-step technique as it helps the learner to easily understand the process.
Technique 8: Drag and drop method
The Drag and drop method encourages the learners to get involved. Learners remember the information that they have learned as this method expects the learner to take action during the process of learning, this, in turn, creates a memorable learning experience for the learner.
Technique 9: Audio/Video Narration
For the complex concepts using Audio/Video Narrations, it helps the learner to understand the concept. Otherwise, there is a chance for the learner to skip the topic if the learner doesn’t understand the concept by reading the text.
Technique 10: Scenario-based learning
Scenario-based learning helps the learner to apply the concepts. Makes the learner solve the problems for the scenarios. This helps them to stay active while learning the course.
Technique 11: Quiz
Learners will get more benefits while attending a quiz. They would be able to remember and retain the knowledge that was gained through the learning program and will also be able to assess themselves.
Technique 12: Virtual Tours
This technique is another interesting addition to the e-learning space.
