This mixed methods research study evaluated the use of technology-based action plans as a way to help improve compliance with the learning objectives of an online training event. It explored how the action planning strategy impacted subjects in a treatment group and compared them to subjects in a control group who did not get the action plan. The study revealed that the action planning process supported the compliance of the learning objectives and provided insights into how the action planning process contributes to this compliance. As a result, this study recommends the use of technology-based action plans, as opposed to paper-based actions plans, as a simple and effective strategy to support the application and evaluation of training, specifically for online live training events.
