​How Students Retain Online Learning

Student retention Learning

According to the learning pyramid, which I’ve adapted from the National Training Laboratories in Maine, knowledge retention rates differ depending on the method being utilized for teaching.

The way of presenting the information is in correlation with one’s likelihood of retaining the complete education.

There are actually two distinct types of teaching methods.

Most online programs these days focus primarily on only one method, usually the easier, less resource necessary of the two.

As you check out the funny looking colored triangle over here, I’ll explain the difference between such methods.

Passive Teaching Methods

• • Students who watch a video on their laptop have a 20% retention rate and get to skip the popular lecture rooms where they only retain about 5% of the lesson.

When you consider merely reading a text book has half the retention rate of that same video, it’s clear this will continue to grow as the source for extended learning.

As online education programs evolve, so too does the realization that by going through the exact steps as the lesson is being presented, more understanding is being realized by more individuals.

This actual demonstration presentation immediately raises the students’ ability to grasp the information by 10%. Unfortunately, that’s the best most online education programs have provided for years.

I guess now looking back, it makes sense as to why so many individuals lose faith, focus, and eventually drive to go anywhere or do anything with the program they paid for.

All of these methods are simple passive methods of teaching. It’s what most people think of when they recall how they learned from a teacher as they grew up. Give us a call at 623-745-8045 and we’ll be happy to explore the best way to help you be a more efficient learner.

I Don’t Understand Online Education

Participatory Methods of Learning

Our online education programs have become so magical because it is the first of its kind to implement a true participatory method in your teaching course.

So many before us would only hold recordings with random successful people in a hide away, asking questions they merely think “someone might be wondering” and called it a bonus discussion webinar.

If a program has been able to continually produce more success stories than others, I’m willing to bet it’s because of continued use of strong leadership within a Facebook Discussion Group.

It’s my personal opinion that it is even more solidified by the twice weekly Q&A phone calls and webinars you’ve maintained since day one.

It is then left up to each student as an individual to utilize the now half of their complete understanding of their education to figure out a bare minimum of 25% of the knowledge by going out and doing what they’ve been taught.

This not only explains why it takes such a large WHY and almost primordial need within themselves to want to succeed at graduating the program, but also aides in the understanding as to why some succeed so effortlessly, while others seem to struggle and fight to keep their dreams.

Those that fail to make up this quarter lose sight of the end result which they pictured when they enrolled in the course.

Even as a fellow student that struggles to grasp what others find so obvious, I tend to feel a sense of failure. Not just that I’ve let myself and my family down.

There’s a feeling of shame for having brought such a negative statistic to those educators that you know have a program that truly alters lifestyles around the world.

The kind of teachers that, not only give all they can to ensure the success of their students, but legitimately care and want the best for their students as individuals.
