We recognise that people learn very differently today. With the advent of YouTube and WhatsApp, we are more attuned to consuming information in bite-sized chunks and visual formats.

Courses that Actuate offers are, therefore:

In Live-Action Video format:
Learners connect with and trust human and not animated instructors. That’s why (almost) all our courses utilise human narrators, and live-action role-plays. Here’re a few examples:

All our courses are made up of multiple bite-sized lessons, each of which is between four and eight minutes in duration. This ensures better lesson offtake because it is easier for learners to carve out five or eight minutes in their busy schedules, as opposed to the longer hour-something dedicated chunks of time that traditional e-learning demands (which users usually simply put off for ‘another day’).
In engaging visual formats
We use highly visual and engaging video, slideshow or infographic formats in our lessons. Meaning, everyone – especially the modern-day learner – loves them! Say goodbye to boring eLearning.
Assessment ready 
Structured in a lesson and assessment format, each micro lesson is followed by an objective-style assessment. This helps you ascertain if and how much of the lesson the learner has imbibed.
Downloadable resources included 
We’ve included a downloadable quick reference guide in PDF format and a lesson implementation tool for managers to guide them in implementing the lessons contained in the course. Here’s what the downloadable resources look like:
