Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do | Character and character tools | Scoop.it
Motivation in eLearning can best be described with a U-shaped curve: novelty and enthusiasm produce high drive at the beginning, but it drops off sharply thereafter, only increasing when the end of the course is in sight. It is up to you to boost and maintain your students' motivation throughout the course, so that they will get the most out of it. Unless they have the motivation to focus and sit through the entire course, they learn nothing at all.

Though every student responds differently, here are some fundamental guidelines you can use to keep your learners motivation levels high from that first splash to the finish line.

Creating bite-sized learning lessons is key..

Donna Farren's curator insight, October 29, 2014 11:22 AM

Interesting and reassuring to know ideas I was learning 10+ years ago in graduate school are still the foundation of good elearning.

4. Engage students with each other is particularly important. Groupwork may not be initially greeted enthusiastically but online collaboration is the future. Often trepidation is replaced by appreciation of new found colleagues with a common interest.

Yay -- an app from StoryCorps that helps you capture anyone's stories!


Over 500 nonprofits already collect stories of their constituents using StoryCorps. You can use it to collect the stories of your customers, also.


But not just any stories. Since growing a business is about connecting with customers and building sustaining relationships, ask for stories that help you get to know them better. 


Pick a theme that connects to how your company serves the world. Ask your customers and staff for stories that speak to that theme.


Use the app to capture, preserve, and share with the world. It's a true gift to have someone felt heard and valued. This app could be a great way to do this on any kind of scale you want.


Story on!

Here's what I like about this article by Nick Morgan -- it focuses on specific ways to engage the audience when you give a presentation.


Yeah! It's rare to find an article that mentions both storytelling (tip #1) and how to bring your audience into your talk.


All the advice shared here is right on. Go ahead and play with these and notice the difference they make!

Engaging stories are one of many different ways to pique student interest and also engage families of the students to help bring support.
