Onlignment

Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.” Blog motivationPart 9 of a series on motivation. A big mistake of some eLearning is to bore the learner with screens of information. A lot of text on screen is likely to be dull, repetitive and will take too long to read. For those who are not really motivated, it can be hard to sustain any affort in trying to learn from a computer. This is especially true if the subject matter is complex and difficult. It is misguided, I believe, to use entertainment as the antidote to this from of disaffection. Arousal. Encouragement.
