engagement

scrutinised

Kallidus has published a series on learner

engagement. Boosting learning

engagement is the holy grail of Learning

on a journey of improvement, you need

to understand how your learning is

engaged with at the moment.

In the first part the company looked at

motivation and goal-setting, usability of

learning technology, and the importance

of on-demand learning. The second part

valuing learner input has on your

engagement levels. Part of the assets

also include a learner engagement

strategy template and the top 5 ways to

measure learning engagement. The

company says the programme is a short
