Social Learning at Workplace to Raise Collaborative Learning. Creating Engaging eLearning is Amazingly Simple Storyline2. We, at Swift, started a concept of filling the gap between the Instructional Designers and eLearning Developers to make the learning content more interactive. After spending a decade in eLearning Industry, we’ve come across many challenges. And the most pressing challenge was that the client wanted the content to be interactive, however, sometimes our ID team ran out of new ideas.

To address this, we started creating a library based on the experience of our Instructional Designers and also gathered insights from various eLearning experts. Now our ID team doesn’t need to think of new ideas, they can just pick and choose from the library. And finally, they mix and match these eLearning interactions to come up with new patterns and concepts. We are happy to announce the release of first batch of interactive screens and you are welcome to access our portal. 25+ Interactive Screens50+ Content Screens If you have an idea, but haven’t found the interactivity in the library then don’t worry.
