A good story can enlighten a curious mind!
Did you know that
The dropout rates are way tooo high in online courses. People don't finish most of the courses they enroll in. Hell, some won't even start their class.
Because online learning is at the last of most people's to-do list.
Because of just Black & White lectures
Because it's putting people to sleep...
It's "Too Educational"
Well, to be honest, it's boorinnggggggg...
Asking 5 Whys make us identify the root of the problem.
Now that we know the real problem behind high drop-out rates, what can we do to solve this problem?
Of course, one needs to start by making the course engaging. Blackboard and white-background PowerPoint lectures are a thing of the past.
Instead of Education, one need to think of it as "Edutainment"
One needs to use colorful visuals.
One needs to use background music.
One needs to use sound effects.
One needs to mix information with memes.
Simply, One needs to be in their student's shoes.
Well, I try to do exactly that. Watch the preview of my courses and find it out yourself.
