7 Ways to Increase Participation in e-learning
In the old adage in the business world "if you think about their future then produce it ", the existing application may not work in e-learning courses.
On the contrary, employees will log in and complete a module or two because they have been requested to do it and then stop doing it quickly and don't finish the lesson.
How can you increase employee engagement with e-learning?
Here are seven key components to help employees get the e-learning they need:
1) Create a welcome lesson design:
Present your information in small and understandable chunks rather than in large and expanding topics. Make sure the course design is organized and the graphics are not overused. Choose an easy font that can be read easily and avoid using too much bold or italic. For easy understanding of the material, be careful to use headings and subheadings and bullet points. Review your material carefully to avoid ambiguity or grammatical errors.
2) Make sure the training you offer your employees is relevant to their role in the organization:
Many companies try applying the snowfall approach to the learning process. Companies are considering whether the pieces of information that need to be learned fall on an employee and that some information will stick and stay there. However, learning doesn't perform that way. If an employee cannot find a way to utilize the information they learned, they will soon forget that information or be bored with it. People learn better when they recognize purpose behind their efforts.
3) Consider whether the technology level involved in training matches the employee's technical skills:
Many e-learning programs have unfortunately failed, miscalculating employees' technical skills. Make sure basic computer training is available for employees who want to enter e-learning but are severely limited or not very good at computer skills.
4) Make the intention of the course clear to the staff:
Motivation derives from purpose, and if the goals are not clear, you cannot explain to your employees why they want to learn a particular course or a specific skill, so their participation will frequently be limited. If they see that training is prepared for progress in the company or is necessary to continue their business in times of technological change, a logical reason for learning is given and this training becomes more possible.
5) Include competition and gamification elements in education:
Bringing some elements of video games to your courses increases employee engagement and makes learning fun. Employees enjoy competing with their colleagues. Arrange employees so that they can continue receiving gamified activities until they reach the next level; you will have built all of your material in a natural review process.
6) Schedule a working day for employees to start learning:
Try informing the employee about the importance of training and then insist that they do the training during their working hours. Today's employees have a well-rounded, planned life that frequently involves heavy family responsibilities and community efforts. Although they may be willing to take some time to learn at home, they may have trouble finding time, so encouraging them to do so during business hours sets a bad precedent for what really matters and encourages participation.
7) Award Winning:
Support employees with certificates or celebration scenes as they complete their e-learning process. This attitude reinforces the importance of education, and every employee enjoys some appreciation for their hard work.
