Why Businesses' Online Training Must be Engaging and Interactive
January 9, 2023

Online training has become an essential part of many businesses' employee development strategies. It allows employees to learn at their own pace and access training materials from anywhere with an internet connection. However, simply providing access to online training materials is not enough. To truly be effective, businesses' online training must include the ability for employees and instructors to engage and interact.

Here are just a few reasons why interactive online training is so important:

  1. Increased retention: Research has shown that people are more likely to retain information when they are actively engaged in the learning process. By allowing employees to ask questions, participate in discussions, and complete interactive activities, businesses can improve the retention of the training material. TalentLMS states, “Engaged learners are more likely to enjoy learning, thus stay committed to completing their courses.”
  2. Enhanced understanding: When employees have the opportunity to engage with instructors and their peers, they can clarify any misunderstandings and gain a deeper understanding of the material. This is especially important for complex or technical subjects.
  3. Greater motivation: Interactive online training can help keep employees motivated to complete the course. When employees see that their contributions are valued and that they are making progress, they are more likely to stay engaged.
  4. Improved communication: Interactive online training provides an opportunity for employees to practice their communication skills. This is especially important for remote teams, who may not have as many opportunities to interact in person.

Overall, interactive online training is an essential component of any business's employee development strategy. By providing opportunities for employees and instructors to engage and interact, businesses can improve retention, enhance understanding, increase motivation, and improve communication.
