Learning engagement is often thought of as a measure that only reflects participation, or simply completion, in a course. What’s needed is an engaging learning experience that results in knowledge mastery and has a direct effect on people’s performance toward business objectives. To address this, Jiani Wu, an expert instructional designer, and Qstream, a microlearning delivery technology, will bring together a conversation to help you design content for high and positive learner engagement within your organization. Together, they redefine learning engagement and help you envision an enjoyable experience that motivates employees to acquire and retain the knowledge and skills to advance job performance and consequently drive business objectives.

During this webinar you will learn about how:

  • To design an active, enjoyable, and engaging learning experience that cognitively challenges learners via testing, spacing, and reinforcement
  • To confirm engagement and learning responses that demonstrate employees have reached required proficiency levels
  • Engagement and proficiency metrics generate analytics to identify business risks and opportunities related to people skills
