Picture something you’re really good at. Maybe it’s the piano. Maybe it’s trivia. Maybe it’s your job. Do you have it?
How did you get good at that skill or competency? Did you get good by reading about it, thinking about it, and listening to other people talk about it? Or, did you get good by taking the action required to learn the skill? By taking the uncomfortable first steps, practicing again and again, and improving over time?Isn’t that how you get good at anything?
As a chef, you wouldn't get good at cooking meals by reading cooking textbooks, taking online cooking courses, and attending cooking lectures.You get good by cooking 1000 meals.
School, and now learning online, is built off a passive framework. Students sit, they listen, they get distracted. That’s why they’re all on their phones. Action is not required. They aren’t engaged!
Online, all they have to do is click through, skip through, and consume when they feel like it, if they feel like it. Over 90% of online courses aren’t completed. This is why students say, “School isn’t practical.” It isn’t. There is no real-world feedback. It doesn’t stimulate, challenge, and spark growth within the student.
When education moved online, they modeled the software after that passive foundation instead of seeing the opportunity to create active learning environments that hold the audience’s attention, teach them through action, involve them, and generate faster more effective results that could never occur in a passive learning environment.
A gap exists in education. Teachers can feel it. Students can feel it. Trainers in the workplace can feel it. The #1 reason businesses dump their training software is because it’s not engaging enough. If you want to hold the attention of your audience, train them faster and more effectively, and give them a more practical learning experience that generates real world results, all it takes is action.
Welcome to DOHQ.
Learning Isn’t Passive
Students don’t learn sitting, watching, and listening
They don’t learn by clicking through online courses
They can’t develop skill by consuming information
This is why people say “formal schooling isn’t practical,” because students don’t develop skills that help in the real world
Learning Is Active
Students actually learn through action, not information
This is how they develop any skill, habit, or competency
They would develop practical, real world skills
Online learning has been modeled after passive education, instead of evolving to create a more intuitive, effective, and compelling solution
