Using eLearning to Promote Classroom Sessions

“What’s in it for me” is a common mantra for learners, especially because they probably have more pressing things to take care of. Your upcoming training session is competing for their time and attention.

In order to grab potential attendees’ attention for an upcoming face-to-face workshop, I recently used Articulate Storyline to create a brief online quiz (click this link if you have 3 minutes and want to take it for a test drive).

Putting together a short, fun online activity can do several things for you:

  1. Creates intrigue as learners get a small taste of what’s to come.
  2. Creates a greater sense of urgency for your content, especially if learners take a quiz like this and realize their New Employee Orientation program (or whatever your content might be) is simply “average” or “needs some work”.
  3. Gets your learners invested in your content before you session even begins (“how exactly can I go from “average” to “world class”?).

Even if you develop in-house training sessions that people are required to attend, creating a sense of intrigue and urgency can help your colleagues get excited to set aside some time for your next workshop.

Have you found other creative ways to engage your audience and promote your training sessions? Let’s hear about them in the comment section.
