How to Boost Learner Engagement and Drive L&D Success

• 2 min read

Discover how microlearning, gamification and building hype for content will boost engagement.

Learner engagement is crucial to the success of your Learning and Development activities. If your learners aren’t interacting with your content, you won’t be able to meet your learning targets for the organization.

The problem is, we live in an age where attention is at a premium and learners have access to more information than they can consume. So, how do you push through the noise and not just produce content that entices interactions but also create hype around your learning programs?

Here are 3 ways to better engage your learners and drive the success of your Learning and Development activities:


Microlearning is a means of learning that moves away from traditional, lengthy training sessions towards specific learner content delivered in small, short bursts – think brief YouTube or Facebook videos, or quick, easy-to-digest and low-time-commitment animations we see all the time on social media.


We all love to win, but we also want to be rewarded for our work and recognized for the effort we put into it. By adding gamification elements into your learning content, you can incentivize learners by encouraging competition among them and provide tangible awards for performance, resulting in increased learner engagement and fun.

Build hype for upcoming content

Your learning content is only as good as your learners’ willingness to consume it. So, how do you build the buzz necessary to get learners excited about new content?

We can actually learn a lot from social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The content on these channels is made to be consumed quickly and easily shareable, so it’s a good idea to approach your learning content promotion in the same way.

To explore this strategy more extensively, we are excited to partner with the eLearning Industry for a webinar that will teach you how to create hype around your learning content using successful tactics from the world of social media.
