Engagement is the key... and how to get it.

 We're all about engagement and connections.

And, we happened to come across this article written by the folks at Lambda Solutions that not only speaks to the importance of engagement but also some solid strategies that our Project Leaders can take to ensure they are maximizing engagement.

Specifically, they identify 7 strategies. You can read the full article here.

1. Set Clear, Achievable, and Measurable Learning Objectives
2. Create Interactive Content
3. Use Gamification
4. Individualize Programming
5. Analyze Learner Behaviour
6. Keep Modules Short
7. Use Notifications


While the 7 strategies above all apply to the traditional (passive) online learning models, many of them are equally applicable within the Huddle Up platform as well - and we encourage our Project Leaders to seek out ways to implement them within the interactive cohorts that share ideas and feedback within Huddle Up.

How do we at Huddle Up view engagement? 


We agree that there are strategies that can make traditional learning more engaging. But we also believe an equally important factor in engagement happens EARLIER in the process by addressing the following three aspects.


When we get the three questions above answered correctly, the learning is naturally much more engaging. Adding the 7 strategies into this environment is like frosting on the cake! (We like frosting too.)

Looking for ways to make your online experiences more engaging?

We encourage our Project Leaders to consider how they can use Huddle Up's interactive framework to make learning solution-focused and engaging. And, utilize the elements above to strengthen the online experiences you create.

Moving Online Learning Forward

Online learning - and our collective thoughts about it -  has evolved dramatically in the last year. Creating and sharing engaging content online has been a difficulty experienced everywhere. The content hasn't changed, but our difficulty in engaging with it in an effective way online has certainly posed its fair share of challenges. "Good content is the first step. But the next step involves those conversations and interactions you have with others to illuminate the content and help you remember it.” - June Ahn, Ph.D In the article  Adapting to the (Not So) New Age of Computer Learning  Kayt Sukel shares some of these difficulties and how to engage learning in a virtual environment.  “Unfortunately, online instruction isn’t as simple as throwing a textbook online—and, in my opinion, online education platforms have focused too much on just putting content up online,” - June Ahn, Ph.D Likewise, feedback is integral to an effective learning environment. In another excellent blo

The Evolution of Online Learning: Four Stages and What's Next?

The pandemic has made everyone far more knowledgeable about online learning platforms than they were 24 months ago. We each know (and feel) the strengths and the limitations of more than a few platforms.  We each have a long and growing list of features we want to see in the next evolution of online learning.  So, it seems a rather good time to step back and explore the evolution of online learning - to see how far we've come, and where we might be heading. One of the best resources out there is a simple progression chart shared in this intriguing article by Tiago Forte. The Future of Education is Community: The Rise of Cohort-Based Courses The evolution of online learning: What's next? We love big-picture reflections like this. While we are all aware of the current disconnect that still exists between the reality of our online learning platforms and the skills and knowledge we want to transfer to learners, we can all agree that the evolution above represents some significant a

Transforming The Way Cohorts Collaborate and Learn

Recently, our Huddle Up team has been having a debate about the cohorts we serve. One Platform: Resources. Ideas. Feedback. Data. Do we strive to transform the way online cohorts collaborate and learn? Or, to transform the way cohorts collaborate and learn?  In short, does the interaction and data shared within Huddle Up's platform allow cohorts to have more productive virtual and face-to-face meetings? We'd like to think "yes". But ultimately, time (and data!) will tell -  as Project Leaders continue to find innovate use-cases. In the last few weeks, we've created a few helpful videos to showcase the Huddle Up model. We hope they shed light on the big potential we see for how to help cohorts be more connected, engaged, and accountable to each other by focusing on ideas and feedback.
