Updated: Oct 12, 2021


When delivering a webinar, it can be a challenge to drive engagement and participation with your attendees sitting behind computer screens. And if a webinar fails to engage the audience, it makes it harder to meet learning objectives.

While there are conventional methods such as Q&A’s, polls, live chats and surveys, blending your webinar with experiential activities will boost engagement exponentially and keep your participants away from multitasking. Above all, it will enable:

1. Learning retention

2. Learning adoption

3. Learning transfer
