Does anybody have any ideas how to make system training more exciting for the learner


At the moment our system training is very dull and it lasts for a whole week. I have only been involved in training for a few months and I would love to make the session more exciting with more group interaction. Does anyone have any ideas they can share with me?

  1. Quizzes!
    I also do system training which can be quite one-dimensional. I have introduced a Powerpoint quiz based on a certain TV quiz show (15 questions covering the processes and concepts with a) b) c) d) options to choose from), and the class does the quiz as a team, calling out the answers. I find it a great lifter at the end of each course (mine are only 1-2 days long) and a good way of consolidating/assessing learning. I also try to have some class discussions where we compare possible uses of the system for different parts of the organisations (making it ‘real’ for the trainees). Entering ‘fun’ bits of information into the systems as well as the boring everyday things can also lighten things up a little.

    Hope this helps.

  2. Use quizzes!
    We use quizzes at the end of each section

    1. Write a list of questions per section, then print them out on business size cards & laminate.

    2. Use these recap cards to ask individuals, they can pick a card and ask each other, they can pick questions and ask in teams, you can do a big quiz at the end using questions asked before…..possibilities are endless.

  3. And try

    This is a great website i found where you can get a 30 day trial

    You can create a huge selection of quizzes etc online and then email your trainees the links – use pre course, post course, during the post lunch dip….

  4. Exciting Training
    The key to learning is to create exciting, demanding and challenging training, whilst keeping the end user wanting more.

    I have spent 20 years training, the last 10 in Computer delivered.

    There are many ways to create the ‘want’ for more and the excitement of completion, none of it has to be boring.

    However it still must remain serious, must not undermine the intelligence of the user and must be easy to use.

    I have lots of ways to achieve this end result, as my clients will testify.

    Get in touch we can discuss it further….
