Why users look for interactivity in e-Learning courses?

16/01/2019: Most e-Learning courses are linear and do not take advantage of interactivity. An interactive course gives the user the possibility to make certain choices during the training course, and much more.
Why users look for interactivity in e-Learning courses?

A course in e-Learning mode can be created using interactivity. This way the user's curiosity will be stimulated even more, and he/she will learn even better. Moreover, the student will be able to explore the entire study environment he/she has in front of him/her, thus avoiding a possible incumbent bore.

An interactive course will clearly be able to approach the user's needs and will be configured as a process in which the decisions to be taken follow the options that the student will later have to face in the real world, every day.

How is it possible to interact with the e-Learning platform? Let's see together.

Interactive e-Learning: navigation

The first thing that a user is led to do during online training is to slip the slides, or to navigate from one point to another of the course. To do this we use a button that is usually placed at the bottom on the right side with the indication "Next". It clearly works to move forward, and move from one screen to another, but it is not the only possible way to interact. Sometimes the button is replaced by a draggable slider.

Interactive E-Learning: screen

Touching the platform screen of the course a student is following is always a way to interact in a simple, immediate and funny way.
This way, users will be able to gain greater control over the contents to be learned and will be able to access them when they want or need; they will also be able to set the starting point that seems more interesting to them. Of course, it is necessary to have the availability of touch screen devices, such as smartphones…

Interactive E-Learning: Tabs and Labels

Interaction can also go through tabs that are not limited to moving from one content to another but that can help the user to put a lot of contents in order in a single slide, perhaps with hidden windows.
The interactive labels, on the other hand, are an excellent way to insert contents in the slide and make sure that everything follows a precise order. They also allow not only to gather, but also to explore content according to the category that the student is interested in. You can then find that specific content when you want it.

Interactive e-Learning: evaluation

The slider in an e-Learning course is not just a tool to scroll through the contents, but it also allows students to interact with the platform by making the decisions required by the training path. This also demonstrates that students who are using online training can better understand the proposed content.
Courses are often offering questionnaires to evaluate the learning of each individual module, so that students can gather information, discover problems or receive advice on how to improve.
