Engagement and motivation

Evan and his girlfriend Irina have decided that their joint new year’s resolution will be to learn a new language: Chinese. Evan is already bilingual and also loves learning new languages so he has suggested this as a perfect way to use his skills, improve and have fun. Irina has not been able to spend much time with Evan recently, due to a demanding new job, and thinks that joining a club together will be a good way of doing this. She is not especially interested in learning Chinese but is happy to go along with Evan’s suggestion.

The motivated learner

‘Engaging learning’ has to be one of the most often repeated phrases in the world of e-learning! Every RFP, tender and requirements document contains it almost as a pre-requisite of the e-learning solution. And while a solution that draws people in and makes things interesting and absorbing is certainly far more effective than the old ‘Click Next’ a million times, we tend to ignore two critical drivers that ‘engage’ us with learning – motivation and curiosity.
