How do you know if your online training course content is engaging? More importantly, which parts of your course is less engaging? In traditional online learning, you don’t receive feedback until it’s too late, if you receive any feedback at all. And for those trainees who do provide feedback, it may be unique to their experience, which will make it difficult for you to view this information in aggregate. Another challenge for trainers is knowing which parts of their online course are engaging.

In online training, one of the most challenging things for trainers is knowing whether their training courses are engaging and effective. Having great animations, videos, and quizzes doesn’t necessarily mean that a trainee is engaged into the course. As a trainer, you’ve worked long and hard on your training course hoping that your trainees are absorbing all the content. It’s even more important when your training is critical to the success of the trainee such as safety and compliance types of training.
