Where I’m speaking in the first part of this year. I’m scheduled to present on branching scenarios, Twine, and getting stories from SMEs.
Instead of using a single narrator, try letting learners listen in on two characters by creating conversation-driven elearning.
What are the benefits of scenario-based elearning? Accelerated expertise, increased motivation, realistic decision-making and more.
Is it better to have a single, large branching scenario or a series of smaller scenarios? It depends on the audience and skills.
I built this branching scenario prototype in Twine, a free, open source tool for creating nonlinear stories.
Use this list of questions to ask SMEs about desired behaviors, mistakes, and consequences to write branching scenarios.
After writing the ideal path for a branching scenario, write the mistakes and consequences. These create the alternate paths in the scenario.
When writing branching scenarios, it’s easiest to draft the ideal path from start to finish first, before writing mistakes and consequences.
I’m speaking at DevLearn 2020 on Streamlining Branching Scenario Planning and Design, as well as hosting an After Hours Buzz conversation.
This is my process for planning before writing a branching scenario, including creating a summary, outline, and list of mistakes.
