Developing Interactive E-Learning Activities

Performance Improvement Volume 44, Number 5, ISSN 1090-8811


Although e-learning can offer interactive and engaging learning experiences, the creative ideas that are necessary to create such environments are not always easy to come up with when designing, developing, or teaching e-learning courses. E-learning activities use online technologies such as chat rooms, discussion boards, or email to facilitate interactions as meaningful exercises. When a variety of interactive e-learning experiences are utilized, retention rates can be improved, learner participation can be increased, learning objectives can be achieved, online learning communities can be developed, and online courses that engage learners can be created. This article describes several activities that take advantage of unique online technologies to create e-learning courses that will excite and engage students while accomplishing important course objectives.
