Designing eLearning for Maximum Motivation

Presented by:

Ethan Edwards,

Chief Instructional Strategist, Allen Interactions

Activating learner motivation is a critical success factor when designing e-learning, and it must be considered when creating individualized web-based training programs. Learning will not occur without active learner engagement. So, while it is important for the instructional designer to get the content “right,” it is even more vital (and usually more challenging) to design interactivity that will draw in the learner and build their commitment to the authentic behavior needed for learning to occur.

In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:

  • Common obstructions to learner engagement
  • How to implement six rules to create motivation in eLearning
  • A design model that creates emotional involvement in doing the right thing

Webinar participants will receive an e-book on e-learning instructional design and will be able to download the presentation slides.
