Secrets To Engage Learners In The Remote Workplace

Connecting with distant learners and keeping them engaged throughout the learning journey is a challenge for L&D professionals. This newfound learning environment denotes that trainers need to work “differently” to hold the learners’ engagement. However, virtual learning involves a different training paradigm where learners are fully immersed in the learning, compared to other forms of training. Therefore, providing immersive virtual learning experiences to remote learners is even more imperative now.

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.
