The statistics surrounding eLearning are not great. Despite all the hype and promise regarding a brave new world of flexible and always accessible online training, the reality is that eLearning only accounts for about 15% of most training budgets. And, as we have noted in previous webinars, the adoption rates (% actually doing it) and completion rates (% actually finishing it) for eLearning are not that great either.

What went wrong? Well, without getting overly analytical, a big part of the problem is that much of the eLearning that gets produced is, charitably speaking, B-O-R-I-N-G. When faced with one-dimensional, non-interactive electronic page-turning, even the dullest, non-interactive in-person training session shines in comparison.

Some innovative organizations are reversing this trend by taking their cue from the electronic gaming industry. They are creating interactive training games and simulations that engage all of the learners’ senses and, most importantly, their brains. This type of approach, when done well, can lead to learners so motivated that they do everything they can to find the time to do the training, as opposed to finding ways to avoid it.

This webinar will focus on realistic ways that you can take your eLearning "beyond blah." Our special guest, Christopher Keesey, of Ohio University Without Boundaries, will share his experience in creating an innovative simulation on health care risk management.
