How to increase retention in your training?
One of the key ways to increase retention is interactivity. Rather than passively consuming content, learners retain information better when they interact with the material. This can include discussions, group activities, problem-solving exercises, and hands-on simulations.
However, the best methods we have available today are through various animated interactive video content including augmented reality, virtual reality and gamification.
Using animation, e-learning and training courses shows how the training content is relevant to real-life situations. The course material should provide examples and case studies that demonstrate how the knowledge or skills can be applied in practical scenarios.
Moreover, strategies such as gamification make learning more fun and active, meaning trainees are more likely to remember what they’re being taught. You can also incorporate interactive elements into your training, such as quizzes, polls, and exercises such as point-and-click puzzles.
Studies show that using interactive e-learning or even gamification methods like rewards, badges, and leaderboards can help to increase motivation and engagement, leading to better retention.
Making the interactivity intrinsic to the information being taught makes the user play an active role in their learning. Use visuals like charts, diagrams and infographics to complement textual content. Visual aids help learners grasp complex concepts and can enhance retention.
It’s also useful to encourage discussion and collaboration among learners. Peer learning and discussions can reinforce understanding and retention.
