Building Relationships in a Digital-First eLearning World

The world of education – particularly for professionals – was already moving online, and the COVID-19 pandemic had only further increased education’s reliance on eLearning solutions and online options.

However, digital courses and eLearning can’t result in a lack of engagement and relationships, which are both still at the heart of true learning.

On this episode of Voices of eLearning, host JW Marshall was joined by Cahoot Learning Managing Director, Warren Kennard.

Cahoot is aiming to introduce community and relationships back into online course design, helping balance the massive scaling of eLearning options with the factors the Cahoot team believes are at the heart of successful education.

“The problem with online learning, by and large, is the engagement levels aren’t where they need to be,” Kennard said. “We see that there is a heck of a lot of people that start out on a program, then drop off the program very soon thereafter. Very few get through to the end … The special ingredient that makes all of the difference is the ability to have conversations with people, to introduce them to their peers and fellow students, and to get them to engage and collaborate.”

Cahoot’s proprietary Learning Management System, or LMS, helps facilitate those connections and build upon the current state of eLearning.
