Learning is greatly aided by emotion so personal experience is the best teacher of all. While in life one can’t find any way around these ‘teaching’ moments, there is an alternative in corporate training – incorporating real-life experiences in e-learning can prove very useful and efficient. Here are a few tips on how to create real-life learning experiences in online training.

Informal Learning

The truth about informal learning: it happens all the time, anywhere

E-learning, Instructional Designers, Managers

When learning and development programs are set up, the attention is focused solely on formal learning. That’s probably because the informal version doesn’t sit well with schedules, set objectives and quantifications.

Games can be an important asset when it comes to company training programs because they attract learners and make them connect on a deeper level with the content.

Why experiential learning is so important in the workplace

E-learning, Instructional Designers

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. Simply said, it’s learning by doing. We all learn better when we are directly involved in a learning experience rather than when we are simply recipients of ready-made content, like formal training courses. Experiential learning comes with interactivity and participation, and is much more effective than traditional learning approaches. But why is experiential learning so important in the workplace?

Games come with an element of fun and inspire competition. What’s more, they offer a safe learning environment, where employees can test their knowledge without real-life risks. Storytelling makes the learner the main character of the game, which leads to even higher engagement rates. The centuries-old storytelling, along with the satisfaction of the top human needs of games will never get out of style.

Branching scenarios make your learners experience real world challenges and deal with real life consequences of their choices, all without real life risks.

They transform the learner from a passive observer into an active and involved participant. The unfolding of the narrative creates a memorable experience, thus helping the learner better retain the information. The consequences of their choices, especially the ones that led to failure, will stick to their minds and will determine them to make the right decisions when real life situations demand them.
