3 Ideas to Include Humor in E-learning | Custom Training and eLearning Blog

3 Ideas to Include Humor in E-learning | Custom Training and eLearning Blog:

 "Who doesn’t like to have a good laugh? I could certainly do with some laughter, particularly if I have to stare the screen for 30 mins or so to complete an eLearning course and effectively assimilate what is being said there. However, many are reluctant to use humor in their eLearning modules as the audiences are not physically present and you can’t gauge their reactions. In face to face training programs, the instructor has the benefit of being physically presence in the same space as his/ her audiences, understand them and their backgrounds and reactions and alter his/ her presentation patterns spontaneously. It is not possible in eLearning as typically it caters to diverse audiences and not all may appreciate or react to humor in the same way. Having said that, it is a real pity if we exclude humor altogether from our eLearning courses. Don’t you think so?"
