How to Engage Your Learners in the Remote Workplace Through Immersive Learning Strategies


This eBook offers insights on how to deliver immersive learning experiences to engage learners in the remote workplace.

Virtual learning entails a different training paradigm, one where learners are fully immersed in the learning – more so than other training forms. The COVID-19 crisis makes delivering immersive virtual learning experiences even more imperative.

Connecting with distant learners, and keeping them engaged throughout the learning journey, is a challenge for L&D professionals. This new learning environment means trainers need to work “differently” to keep learners engaged.

And, given that this non-traditional learning environment requires an equally “non-traditional” training approach, L&D teams must look at offering more immersive virtual learning experiences.

Immersive learning approaches not only help you engage your remote learners but they also create learning experiences that are sticky and ensure that higher level goals like application of learning or change in thinking and behavior are met.

Of the various options that you can use to deliver immersive learning experiences, in this eBook, I show you how 4 techniques – Gamification, Microlearning, Video Based Learning, and Scenario Based Learning can be used.
