As eLearning professionals, educators, or trainers, we realize that high learner engagement comes from immersive and interactive learning experiences and not from non-interactive page-turner courses. But using interactive templates to build engaging modules comes with its own set of challenges.If I ask you what comprises a good eLearning course, most of you would unanimously state - high-quality content, pleasing aesthetics, easy navigation, and engaging interactions. While all these elements are important for an effective course, the last one is generally considered to be the most challenging. And today, we shall talk about the same. Course creators and Instructional Designers generally seek access to ready-to-use, interactive eLearning templates to catalyze the eLearning creation process. But it doesn’t end there. Interactive template libraries do give you multiple options to choose from, and you can actually save enormous time when compared to building such interactions from scratch, though they come with their own set of challenges. Let’s have a look at some of these challenges today.

Article | May 3, 2021

Special education instructors, like everyone else, turned to an array of digital tools and technologies to continue teaching in the wake of the pandemic. And while most would agree the shift to online learning came with serious challenges, many also found solutions that worked. “This last year was a struggle — I won’t tell you it was not,” says Wendy Thompson, a special education teacher at New Jersey’s A. Harry Moore School. “That being said, we have seen success, and there are things out there that can help.” Thompson, who is also president of the New Jersey Coalition for the Advancement of Assistive and Rehabilitation Technology, says the key is to ensure the tools educators use can be adapted to fit the needs of individual students. “It’s important to approach students where they are and provide them with options for how they can respond and show what they know and what they are learning.”
