We recently released a study “The Anatomy of a Training Course,” where we broke down the data we have collected to serve as a benchmark as you build out your own training strategy. This post will be sharing our findings on the correlation between lesson count and completion rates.
Number of Lessons
We know — it’s tempting to try to squeeze as much information as you can into one course. But don’t overdo it, or your students will quickly lose interest.
In fact, we noticed a significant downward trend: the more lessons per course, the lower the completion rates. With just one lesson per course, there was a 91% completion rate. At four lessons per course, completion rates fell to 61%. And at eleven to fifteen lessons per course, only 32% of registrants finished their training.
