Engaging learners in both traditional and online environments has always been a challenge because learners expect more than passive experiences. Technology provides promise and also presents new challenges . The Northwest Area Health Education Center tried many ways to incorporate technology to enhance levels of learner engagement. These technologies included audience response (clickers), lecture capture, live stream, video conference, unified messaging, ad-hoc training, personalization, blended learning modules, Articulate Presenter, Articulate Storyline, SMS/BYOD, mobile, social media, and more.
