The AFT model: how to make online learning into an engaging experience

How many stories do you have of crappy e-learning that is designed to tick boxes rather than improve knowledge or, perish the thought, improve performance? Most e-learning packages I have done work best as anesthetics, putting me to sleep in an instant, and putting me off e-learning for life.

That’s the problem, bad e-learning doesn’t just fail to as a learning experience, it scars learners so that they never want to engage the medium ever again!

Edan Kertis made it his quest to make e-learning – or digital learning – into something engaging, that people enjoyed and valued, that made a difference to real world performance. To do this, he came up the AFT model.
