Learnification is the future of gamification
We’ve found that within the industry, gamification can be implemented into learning solutions without much benefit to the course and most importantly to the learner’s experience.
So in a time of reflection, we had to ask ourselves is there a problem with the way that games are used within the e-learning industry?
5 barriers to learner engagement – and how you can overcome them
Learner engagement is absolutely crucial to creating a wider feeling of commitment to your organisation. But before you can secure widespread employee buy-in, you first need to overcome several hurdles.
In this article, we take a closer look at the biggest barriers to learner engagement and offer a few ways you can overcome them.
LOW LEARNER ENGAGEMENT? STORYTELLING COULD BE THE ANSWER
Trying to engage learners is a constant issue within the L&D industry. Some of the usual reasons behind low learner engagement are employees lacking the time to learn and no clear strategy in place to support the learning. But these obstacles can be overcome. The power of storytelling is undeniable and can really help with increasing learner engagement for your elearning solutions.
Are you forgetting about the learner?
Digital learning needs to be learner-focused. This obvious point shouldn’t need addressing but here we are. The L&D industry is always striving to deliver the best learning possible but in-between this focus and the ever-changing industry, the learner can be left forgotten.
This article provides some reasoning to how it can get to this point and that by asking the right questions, building trust, emotional connections and looking at your current learning culture can result in the learner being put first in your digital learning solutions.
TRANSFORMING YOUR ONBOARDING WITH DIGITAL LEARNING: PART 2
Last week, we looked at how L&D can use digital learning to refresh their organisations’ onboarding, starting with goal setting and personalisation. Now, we are going to explore in more depth some of the other ways you can take your onboarding to the next level, by creating an onboarding digital learning experience that will encourage the knowledge to stick.
Transforming your onboarding with digital learning: part 1
Traditionally a formal ‘one-size-fits-all’ programme, onboarding can sometimes be neglected as a bit of a box-ticking exercise. Yet onboarding needs to be given the attention it deserves as a critical part of your L&D offering. Let’s look at a few of the ways you can reinvigorate your onboarding using digital learning, to ensure it’s setting up new employees for long-term success.

REDUCING HUMAN ERROR IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS TRAINING APPROACH.
Human error is involved in more than 90% of security breaches, with such a high percentage, it can’t just be ignored. Human error is defined by employees that cause or allow a security breach to happen by accidental action or absence of doing.
At Fenturi, we focused our cyber security awareness course around reducing the risk human error brings to an organisation.
TRANSLATION & LOCALISATION: YOU ONLY NOTICE TRANSLATION WHEN IT GOES WRONG, THIS IS HOW WE GET IT RIGHT
30th September marks International Translation Day – a day to pay homage to the world’s language professionals and the work they do. ‘It’s very exacting, difficult work to do,’ summed up the head of UN English translation service, Katherine Durnin. Far from simple conversion of language A into B, the process involves careful consideration of all nuance in dialects, grammar rules and standards, tone of voice, and cultural relevance.
EQUAL REALITIES: ADDRESSING THE VIRTUAL REALITY GENDER GAP.
Only 14% of UK VR companies have any women directors on the board (Kings College & University of Brighton, 2019). If you are a man in the UK or US, you are almost twice as likely to have spent time in virtual reality (Global WebIndex 2019). This challenging situation roughly reflects tech’s status quo, however it doesn’t have to be this way. We are actively trying to reduce this bias within the VR and e-learning industry.
EMPOWERING STAFF PERFORMANCE WITH LEARNING TECHNOLOGY.
Digital Learning has the potential to promote personal development, encourage career progression and allow staff across a global audience easy access to new resources and useful content.
This was the challenge presented to our team by a pharmaceutical client keen to unlock the potential of e-Learning and unlock the potential of their leaders. With assets stored across multiple systems and staff unable to track their development or gain insight on career progression within the organisation, a sense of uncertainty was beginning to grow.
Why authenticity works for compliance e‑Learning.
There is an ever-growing need for compliance and risk courses on both a corporate and an individual basis. Here our client, a law firm operating in over 150 countries, wanted to implement a compliance series not just for their own people but one they would use to add value to their clients across the globe.
Our client wanted to challenge the perception of compliance training so the project had to presented in a fresh way and be different other courses so we set out to redefine the learner engagement.
A FRESH APPROACH TO UPGRADING YOUR LEARNING TECHNOLOGY.
Until recently, most e-learning content has been built using Flash. This was all well and good since most learners were accessing the courses on desktops. Then touch-screen devices came along and learners wanted to access their courses on laptops, tablets or mobiles, whilst on the move or on the job.
The problem …Flash is not installed on a lot of tablets and smartphones. Plus, Flash carries an increasing security risk. This means many companies are left with legacy content that simply doesn’t meet the needs of many of their learners and now runs the risk of becoming obsolete.
