9 Tips To Improve Online Learners’ Engagement - eLearning Industry

9 Tips To Improve Online Learners’ Engagement - eLearning Industry | ICT for Education and Development | Scoop.it

The most online learners do not have a teacher at their place to explain things to them. Online learners cannot raise their questions before a teacher who can promptly provide answers to them. So, they do face difficulty in understanding things clearly while receiving education through online learning courses.

Their problem magnifies even more when teachers and professionals designing online courses do not give due attention to making things simple for them. As a result, online learners get to see too much of text, images, links,and graphics in their online course matter and they do not know on which online learning elements they should focus upon. There is hardly any cohesiveness and consistency in the learning message imparted to them. The navigation of these online courses is far from easy. Sometimes images relevant to the online course matter are not there.

The analysis of such situations shows that effective eLearning can take the best from traditional education and even surpass it. Modern learning tools should allow instructors and students to create, edit, and comment on all presented materials. This will encourage discussion and keep everybody updated on the latest news. Webinars and instant messages in chats are especially necessary in the corporate sector, for example when new products are put on the market and the first hands-on experiences are highly valued

Stewart-Marshall's insight:

For years people have been asking "Is online education as good as face-to-face education?" But we shouldn't ask that question because it implies that F2F is some sort of gold standard, and in my experience that is certainly not the case. It's rather like asking the question "Is a TESLA car as good as a Reliant Robin?"

Valid points.  E-Learning has evolved. There are so many tools now and ways to collaborate and communicate online.
