Align with your message
Whatever content types you select, just make sure that they align with the message you want to deliver, and with complementary exercises that enable reflection, learning interaction between learners that stimulates natural, intellectual conversation. An intuitive online learning platform like Dream See Do can naturally encourage and empower these types of interaction, and the content types you choose help to support the overall learning experience and motivation of your learners. The other option is to place your audience in a flat environment with static pieces of boring content that do not allow for any interaction, like most online learning systems. Likely not your first choice.
Align with your style and strengths
Some folks are great on camera, some have tv style voices and others are better in communicating with beautiful images and prose. Whatever strengths you and your team have, harness them in your content, to ensure the most resonant connection and retention! This will result in much more compelling material that resonates with your audience and drives them to want to engage with your learning experience.
In summation….the juice
When you create an online learning community, one of the most critical goals is to effectively harness the power of peer support and shared learnings. This is the ‘juice’ of any effective online learning experience. If you choose the right content types for your material, that deliver your message effectively, which are succinct and in your voice, you will vastly increase people’s engagement with your content. Moreover, as people learn and practice together, they will also have engaging content that supports this natural learning environment. You will see better outcomes and retention in your programs as a whole.
