HOW TO…make e-learning engaging

November 2008
People Management;11/13/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 23, p65
The article provides a guide to personnel management (PM) staff to engaging employees to e-learning. Genuine engagement in e-learning means creating courses that are powerful enough to spin off in multiple directions depending on the curiosities of the learner. Asking questions that the learner does not necessarily know the answer to will encourage engagement and reflection on the subject matter being taught. PM should keep in mind that exercise and a test are two entirely different things and they should not be confused with one another.
