    [Providers] Engage Your Learners By Mimicking the Real World
    You could even bury links in the body of the emails to provide additional resources and information. People already use their computers for things like checking email, surfing the web, and sharing the latest news on Facebook. Since that’s the case, why not design a course structure that mimics how they already use their computers? I see a lot of elearning courses and I’d say that most of them are linear and almost exclusively focused on sharing information. Because sometimes it’s all you need, or all the customer wants. Or explore a fake Facebook page to collect information.
