Finally, full interactivity represents the highest level of engagement. Think of levels 1, 2, and 3 as a pyramid, with the apex representing full immersion. The courses at this level include all of the components in other levels, plus gamification or simulation. These range from 360° images and avatars to interactive videos, stories, scenarios, and more.
Learners are also kept motivated throughout the course with a reward system. This could be points, badges, levels, leaderboards—whatever motivates your learners!
Full interactivity also includes complex branching scenarios that allow for open-ended decision-making. Learners receive feedback based on their choices, and the outcomes can change depending on what they decide. In other words, their learning path is created as they go, and no two paths are the same.
This level is ideal for learners who need to practice real-time decision-making skills, and results in the most immersive learning experience. Although these courses take more time to design and develop, they’re worth it—for both you and your learners.
