Friedrich Fröbel - SmarterU LMS - Corporate Training

Fröbel, who had a difficult childhood, left home when he was nine years old to live with his maternal uncle in Stadtlim, Germany where he became a forester at the age of 15. Observing the symbiotic ecosystem in which plants and animals lived in unity fascinated Fröbel, who felt that the same unity must be attainable by humans, as well.

He pursued an education in pedagogy and was heavily influenced by John Amos Comenius, the ‘father of modern education’, and Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi, a Swiss educator who believed all children deserved an opportunity to be educated.

Inspired by their teachings, he dedicated his life to early childhood education and helping children recognize and appreciate the common patterns and forms found in nature. This led to his creation of Kindergarten, now a global concept, and the development of Fröbel’s Gifts – educational toys which included geometric building and pattern activity blocks.

Secrets of eLearning Engagement Webinar - SmarterU LMS - Learning Management System

Struggling to Improve eLearning Engagement?

No matter what industry sector you are in, no matter how good you feel your online training materials may be – most businesses who use online training have the same big question.

“How do I improve learner engagement?”

In this fast-paced 45 minute session, neovation’s President, Dan Belhassen busts some myths and delivers insight into how you can:

  • increase learner satisfaction (dare we say happiness?)
  • decrease friction for learners as they interact with online training technology
  • make learners eager to complete their training
  • engage supervisors to connect more effectively with their trainees
  • leverage “gamification” to increase engagement
  • develop better content that learners will want to learn
  • and more!

Dan had a great time delivering this webinar, and answered many questions from the live session participants. If you have questions, just let us know – we’re here to help!
