Course creators generally use interactive eLearning templates to improve the engagement levels of a course. But it is overwhelming to choose from a huge library of templates. This article lists some best practices to ensure you use interactive eLearning templates optimally to drive engagement.Call it digital age’s side effects or sheer irony, but as much as digital learners would like to engage well with a course, they don’t want to sit through it. Even worse, they dread witnessing dry PowerPoint slides. They are constantly distracted by so many other things around. That snapchat message definitely needs the first attention. And their constantly decreasing attention span just adds to your woes as a course creator. So, to make this entire process of eLearning interesting and engaging for them, you decide to bring in interactivity. You get an interactivity building tool, acquire access to its huge library of templates, and include these interactions in your course. And whoa! It does seem to work. With their ability to let the learner interact with them at various touch points, interactive eLearning templates are meant to make eLearning engaging by their design itself. They are also meant to ease course creation since you could just use them rapidly without any programming. But like any good thing, they too can fail at their job if not used effectively. Here are some best practices to follow when working with interactive eLearning templates to ensure their optimal usage and get the best results.

Ani's Math Story

Article | May 27, 2020

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with math, leaning heavily towards the latter. It was always something I was good at, but didn’t enjoy. Quite frankly, it still stuns me on a regular basis that I’ve ended up working for a math company. Let me try to parse this out by saying that math has been intrinsically tied to every definitive choice I’ve made, consciously or unconsciously. Flash backwards—I’m 4. My mom is teaching me long division, insisting that this is absolutely crucial for how I map the rest of my life. I assume this is how the rest of my peers spend their time, completely oblivious to the fact that other neighborhood children are outside, running around on playgrounds, doing cartwheels up and down their sunlit front yards. Instead, I’m grinding away. I think I remember this as fun. I think I ask my mom to give me another multiplication problem.

A 5-Year Vision for Artificial Intelligence in Higher Ed

Article | February 26, 2020

Ramsey, who led the AI and machine learning solutions team for Google Cloud, specializes in AI-augmented education. He said that AI and its subsets, such as machine learning and deep learning, can address current challenges in education such as student retainment and teacher shortages. But the five-year outlook for AI will only be slightly different from what it is today, Ramsey said. “The capabilities will already exceed what the industry is using them for,” he said. “In other words, the technologies are way ahead of the applications, and it’ll take a while for the applications to catch up, because people don’t change overnight.”
