Why e-learning is effective?
What is the process of e-learning development?
Effective Instructional Design
Unlike typical classroom training, there is no captive audience for e‑Learning programs. Learners are just one click away from the exit. Effective instructional design is of paramount importance to engage, motivate and inspire target learners. Thus, we have a specific courseware instructional design framework which is shown as follows.
Different Fascinated Approaches
To introduce the informational knowledge of the training. This type of courseware will use lots of animation, photos and games to demonstrate key concepts and explain the work-flow. Interactive games, revision and quizzes can reinforce understanding of the learning process. According to Adult Learning Theory and our experiences, a short interaction will be designed every 5-10 minutes intervals.
To illustrate samples with “See-it-mode” and “Do-it-mode”. Procedures of operating the systems can be clearly illustrated and the learners can easily grab the features and functions of them.
To illustrate real-life scenarios encountered usually in practice. Scenarios to interact with people and to meet different situation will be provided. Learners will be asked to participate in the scenario to make their choices.
Our proven methodology is the culmination of many years of practical experience in content development. It provides a framework and many useful tools for the project team to plan, analyze, design, implement, evaluate and maintain the courseware.
Standards-compliant Tracking Capabilities
We have tools to publish the courseware automatically in common e‑Learning standard formats, such as AICC and SCORM, to facilitate interoperability with any standards-compliant Learning Management System and to provide the necessary tracking functionalities. As we know that one of the important merits of e-Learning is the ability to know the usage and performance of learners by some tracking functions of the package. We can build in some tracking and reporting to ensure that valuable data can be collected from the learners. Usage and Performance statistics include:

What Cyberwisdom custom content can apply to:
INTERACTIVITY IN ONLINE EMPLOYEE TRAINING
If online learning is by default interactive, why do we still talk about creating “interactive” training? Probably because on some level, we still cater to the idea that interactivity is really cool. In our heads, it’s more than its literal definition, and we envision interactive training not just as something people can interact with but also being engaging enough to catch the learner’s interest. Our design will be having adequate learning activities that require the learner to do something beyond mere clicking but also the learners need actively thinking, working, and wondering and rethinking.
Scenarios are activities that can definitely ask more of a learner than a few rote clicks, and they’re an important part of compliance. They contextualize what might otherwise be abstract information. At Cyberwisdom, we find that the more authentic scenarios are in their details, the more engaging they are. For tricky issues, we recommend that the scenario should be branching with several nuanced decision points.
SALES ENABLEMENT TRAINING
Another great activity that involves some thinking and some working is having product interaction during sales enablement. Such an activity might be something similar to a scenario, where the learner chooses the best product option or approach for a simulated customer. It might also be something like this IKEA catalog.
Onboarding is the easiest of all trainings to make shingly interactive. A first week at most companies includes an orientation of sorts: setting up the workspace, getting a tour of the building, meeting new coworkers, and so on and so forth. It’s not hard to make those interactions engaging and meaningful. Weave that kind of active participation into the onboarding portion of the new hire’s first week as well, and you’re golden.
A great way to incorporate interactivity into brand training is to create spaces where potential brand ambassadors can explore resources and connect with the brand. This could mean creating a learner profile on a portal full of brand messaging. It could also mean giving away branded swag that learners can then use to practice showcasing their brand correctly.
