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.

Would You Take Your Own eLearning Course?

Anyone seeking to create meaningful and engaging eLearning courses can benefit by remembering what it is like to be on the other side. It is bad practice to subject learners to any training that you would not participate in yourself. It’s time you stop blaming the “boring” content and commit to stop tormenting the learners who are required to take your course! Our job as eLearning designers is to FASCINATE and DELIGHT the learner from beginning to end. In the excitement of launching a new course, it’s easy to overlook details. Therefore, it can be very useful to have a checklist for last-minute touches.

Motivate Employees to Participate in Training: 8 Ideas

Let’s face it; the word “training” rarely inspires much joy in an office. People commonly associate training with school, and few people really want to go back there or take time out of their job to do it. But, the fact remains, that training is still pretty much the best way to make workers better at their current job and possibly even to move them up to a higher position. You might think “shouldn’t telling employees to take a course be enough of a reason for them to do it?” Making training mandatory will up attendance, but it is motivation that actually allows learning to happen. Motivation is what turns an interest in a subject and a desire to get ahead into actual action.  Consider how many times you have said you want to do something like write a novel or learn a new language but have you done those things? If you have those goals but haven’t accomplished them, then you have experienced the frustration that comes with having the desire but not motivation. Your employees also need this push of inner strength that motivation brings in order to actually seek out and absorb the information available. But how do you motivate learners to participate in training? Read on to get an insight into getting your employees to take action towards development.
