Are you connecting?
So, what do you do when learner Mollie lands in your learning environment and she wants to know, “What do you have here that’s relevant to me?”
Does your course offer Mollie cues that she might learn something useful?
Does your course begin with a “hook” that draws Mollie in to the experience?
How does the material you present relate to Mollie’s job?
What about your course tells Mollie that it’s worth its “wait” in clicks?
It’s all about interaction.
