Think and Grow Rich Online Reading vs. Virtual Training
E-learning that uses online reading is having a moment for a good reason. If done right, it can produce excellent results by improving your performance while being considerably cheaper than a traditional course. Also, unlike a one-time classroom session, the e-learning containing online reading is available to revisit as frequently as you want to brush up on the topic at hand.
But is it all one in the same?
Online Reading Leads to Significantly Less Retention Than Training
The Scientific American reports that, despite the popularity of e-readers and tablets that allow for digital print, reading on a screen puts learners at a disadvantage.
Nonetheless, some key findings emerged that shed new light on the differences between online reading and looking at printed content: Students overwhelming preferred online reading. However, were able to retain more knowledge from printed materials, showing an overall better comprehension.
The reason, it turns out, is that our brains do better at retaining information when they can recall it with contextual details.
Examples include remembering the approximate place in a physical book you were at when reading a specific quote. Or, it could be something as simple as the feel of turning a page—both contextual elements that are missing from online reading.
Our Virtual Training Was Designed to Help You Learn
To try and create the best possible learning experience for those interested in Think and Grow Rich, we researched studies on online reading and designed our course to bypass the pitfalls associated with simply reading online.
For example, the Think and Grow Rich online reading is available in both PDF and audiobook, and we encourage users to listen while reading for an immersive experience.
Additionally, each chapter is accompanied by TWO videos—an introduction and explainer video—to ensure you’re getting the most out of the text.
Finally, we’ve included a custom workbook that allows you to apply Think and Grow Rich in actionable steps to your own personal goals, creating a learning experience as unique as your reason for learning.
In short, when it comes to intensively reading long pieces of plain text such as Think and Grow Rich, experiencing a combination of formats is most helpful for retaining what you learn in each reading session.Want to know more about the benefits of Napoleon Hill VT?
