Use gamification techniques
It can become monotonous and boring for students to just read and learn the educational content if there is no fun activity to encourage and motivate them. Healthy competition and activity bring liveliness and energy to learners to keep them engaged and to keep motivation levels high.
You can reward your learners with frequent tasks and give them points, medals, and badges to ramp up the difficulty level as the session progresses so that they challenge themselves to improve their performance.
Providing immediate feedback to learners when they finish a task, poll or quiz is an excellent way to keep them directed and engaged as it enables them to track their current progress as they move within the different stages of their learning journey.
