The problem with teaching a large group of people in a classroom or boardroom setting is that it’s hard for instructors to give individual attention. Some students or employees might require a more hands-on approach compared to others, but if there are dozens or even hundreds of people to deal with, personal instruction becomes a near impossibility. However, with Learning Management Systems (or LMSs), trainees can learn at their own pace. They can learn what they need to know in a timely manner and upgrade their knowledge and skills. Moreover, LMSs often have discussion forums built right into them. Trainees can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of discussions taking place if the forums aren’t managed well, but by putting some general guidelines in place, you can reduce unnecessary off-topic discussions and encourage trainees to connect in meaningful ways. There are a variety of different ways to socialize your courses. Here are some tips and ideas on how you can boost the overall enjoyment level of your courses and increase trainee motivation in the process.
