SHIFT CHAT: include it in your eLearning courses!

SHIFT Chat is a new feature that allows you to take online eLearning courses to a new level of interactivity.

It is an enhancement that allows the learner who takes an eLearning  course to communicate with a defined expert via a web chat window. 

This new feature can be added to:

  • A specific screen.
  • A full course through the navigation bar. 

Main benefits of this new feature:

  • Direct communication tool
  • Within the same course
  • Real time communication 
  • User-friendly

How it works?

1. The user clicks the chat button.
2. After clicking the chat button, a window appears in which data must be completed (name, mail, course, etc).
3. The expert available, receives the request in his/her chat console, reads the data entered by the user and accepts communication.
4. By accepting the request, both the user and the expert dialogue through a private session.

The Basics of Motivational eLearning Design

When we think of the word, motivation, instantly two things come to mind. First, when we are young, many outside things motivate us, a desire to do something, the reality of punishment from our parents, positive and negative reinforcement of what we are doing, etc. All of these things help to motivate children, and in some cases, it has a positive effect, and in other cases, it does not. The more proactive the motivation, the more positive the response to that motivation, the more reactionary the motivation, the more negative the response. The second picture that comes to mind is a learned reaction to something. Like Pavlov and his dogs, which would salivate when he rang the bell, motivation can be at times subconscious. However, there are much more things that drive the motivation of human beings, and in the arena of learning, there are some critical pieces to the puzzle that have to be developed so that learners feel the value of what they are learning and how it will benefit them. The rewards of their success must be considered from a variety of sources and satisfy them on a variety of levels, and as instructional designers of e-learning programs, we must not only understand these factors but be skilled in utilizing them in the courses that we design.
