Putting the Demand Back in On-Demand Learning

I didn't come up with that headline. One of my very smart and witty clients said that in a conversation we were having the other day with a group of his internal subject matter experts. I'm co-opting it and encourage all of you to do the same.

So much on-demand training consists of boring page turners. I've created my share. The learner cringes. If you're lucky, they actually view every page (probably because they were forced to by a menu lockout).

What have you done lately to create a course that will intrigue and inspire your learners? That will motivate them to come back for more? That puts the demand back in on-demand training?


Perhaps you need some instructional design inspiration? Perhaps you need to think about motivating the learner?

I know I do. I'm writing financial industry software training course storyboard #10, in a series of 29 courses! Needless to say, it's demanding.
