Branching Scenario Course Q&A

Questions and answers about my upcoming Build Your Branching Scenario course, launching soon!

My Build Your Branching Scenario course is still in development, but I can answer some questions about the program now.

Build Your Branching Scenario

What does this branching scenario course include?

This course includes opportunities to learn by doing, plus presentations, resources, and feedback to help you create a branching scenario from start to finish.

We’ll have 8 live, virtual sessions. Each week, you’ll join a 1-hour live session via Zoom. These sessions will include presentations, demos, and time for questions. Can’t attend live? Each session will be recorded for you to review later.

As you progress through the course, you’ll build your branching scenario step-by-step. When you complete the weekly activities, you can immediately apply what you learn.

What additional resources are included?

The course includes templates, samples, reading material, and curated resources. Some of these resources are exclusive to the course and won’t be available on my blog or through other sources.

Who is this course for?

Instructional designers who want to create a branching scenario. The scenario could be for a current work project, or it could make a great portfolio sample.

Specifically, this is best for people who do a little bit of everything in their jobs, from analysis through development. This course walks you through the whole process from concept to delivery.

What if I don’t do any development in my work, only planning and writing?

This course will be helpful since most of the focus is on those parts of the process. You don’t need any technical expertise to get started in Twine, the free tool we will use in this course. I’ll give you everything you need to create a functional branching scenario, even without any development skills. You can use that as is, without any fancy development or multimedia, or you can pass that along to other developers to work their technical magic.

What if I’m a developer? I don’t write scenarios; I just want to build them.

If your work exclusively focuses on development, then this course might not be the best fit for you. Much of the content will focus on planning and writing. However, I’m considering creating a future course focused just on development. If you’re interested in a development-focused course, please let me know. When you complete the form, tell me which tool you primarily use. That will help me judge the interest for a future offering.

How much will the course cost?

This first time, the course will be $495. I’m offering it at a 50% discount because this is the pilot, and I expect to have some bumps along the way. In the future, the course will cost $995. If you want the discounted rate, sign up when enrollment opens, even if you won’t be able to complete the training until later.

What can I do while I’m waiting for enrollment to open?

Check out my past presentations on scenario-based learning or read my blog posts explaining my process.

You can also sign up for the waitlist to be the first to be notified when enrollment opens.
