Learner engagement can be elusive. It is difficult to grab and hold a learner’s attention with so many smartphone distractions at their desk or at their fingertips. But engagement is possible through specific techniques that command attention and engage the learner.

In this session you will learn how to engage learners and how to present content using gamification techniques such as storytelling, feedback, and competition.
