August 19, 2020
Interactivity in Training is not a new topic, but it has come more to the forefront recently as trends such as Micro-Learning and Gamification have become more popular and demands are increasing to provide more benefits (such as increased ROI, higher grades) in less time.
Making a training interactive can come in many forms, but it usually refers to adding elements into the training that require or encourage the learner to do something in order to progress further into the training. Perhaps they need to answer some questions, click on a specific part of a webpage or drag and drop items to solve a puzzle. All of these items require the learner to interact with the training to accomplish something.
