Your Way: Click-worthy Learning Content

This 90 minute webinar is from our  suite of Your Way offerings.
It is ready to be presented to your staff, at a time that suit you! Need more information? Simply fill out our enquiry form below for a quote.

It's frustrating when we put effort into creating high quality learning content only for students to not engage with it. That content might include videos,  learning activities, readings, or even attending live sessions.

This webinar is built from research that observed online student behaviour and engagement, and interviewed students about why different content yielded different attention – they said it’s all about how content is framed or communicated. The resulting framing strategies are what you’ll be learning in this webinar. These practical strategies have been shown to significantly increase student engagement with content – implement these and you'll immediately see an increase in how much key content is accessed, and actively engaged with, by more students.

Discussion forums are a specific type of learning activity that many trainers are wanting to improve. While the first part of this webinar is about getting students to click on key content, in this second part we’ll focus on the nature of discussion forums once you have captured student attention. You’ll learn the differences between deep participation and superficial ‘likes’, and will be able to spot discussion champions, strikers, hustlers, and bench-sitters. Importantly, you will learn to plan what kind of participation you’re seeking, as well as how to design for, and coach students toward, authentic engagement in online discussion spaces.

The detailed workbook includes all the planning tools for ongoing use. It also features a link to bonus content about how to take effective notes.
