In my short time working within the eLearning world, one word has consistently jumped out from all the jargon. Engagement. At eLN Connect last year it was all anyone could talk about. ‘How can we engage the learner?’ ‘Are we engaging them enough?’ ‘What about millennial learners?!’ ‘Look there’s a learner! Somebody, quick – engage them!’
It’s been a few years now since I’ve been on a video shoot. I studied media production at university and worked for a while as a runner at a TV company so I was feeling pretty confident about the whole thing.
Last week I found myself diving head first into the world of Digital Learning at eLN Connect 2016 and being new to the industry I was keen to go to as many talks as possible and soak it all in.
I was already awake when my alarm went off. By 7am my mind had already long been whirring with a combination of excitement and fear.
