Creating a course that the user must interact with for a total of 4 hours! It's a compliance issue.

Feb 10, 2023

I've created a course that has 10 different modules. In total, the user must interact with all 10 modules for 4 hours. No less.

It's a completely daunting task.

I would love some ideas on how to extend the course modules to last this long. I would love to update what I have so that it is more engaging.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi Amy,

my first thought is "why?" :D

Why should the learner spend 4 hours if there isn't 4 hours of content to read or watch? Do the stakeholders want to transfer a live session that would be 4 hours long into an e-learning? I don't think it's possible and it might not be useful. If you watch or read, you also think about this stuff afterwards, how would you track "thinking" in a LMS?! In a live session there may be discussion and questions, so the 4 hours is reasonable, but a course is something completely different.

If you really want to force someone to spend at least 4 hours in a course, the only way to do that is to have content they cannot skip, like videos in between.
