Whether your healthcare workers are taking continuing education training, re-certifying their CPR skills, or using training to improve their general knowledge and skills, continuous learning is an important part of every medical professional’s job.
Yet, as important as training is for healthcare professionals, it isn’t always inherently engaging for them. Between droning narration of text-heavy slides and a lack of meaningful interaction, some e-learning feels more like a sedative than like an inspiring experience!
So what kind of preventive care can you give healthcare learners to ward off an e-learning coma? Here are five medical-themed freebies that can help inspire your designs and deliver a jolt of engagement to your next e-learning course—stat!

- Looking for a fun, hands-on way to help your healthcare workers reflect on what they’ve learned in your training? Here’s a clever idea from Tracy Parish: use fill-in-the-blank questions with hint text. As the correct words are entered into each text field, the answer options are crossed off on the bottom.
- With this easy-to-adapt PowerPoint download, Trina Rimmer illustrates that you don’t necessarily need to make your course more complicated to help improve the learning experience.
