What are the benefits of scenario-based elearning? Accelerated expertise, increased motivation, realistic decision-making and more.
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.
In this post, I share links on writing better dialogue, sample projects for inspiration, and useful tools for different kinds of learning.
This is my process for planning before writing a branching scenario, including creating a summary, outline, and list of mistakes.
In branching scenarios, use a combination of immediate and delayed consequences and feedback, depending on the learners and goals.
Converting multiple choice questions to scenario-based questions can increase the difficulty, measure higher level thought, and provide relevant context.
Instead of boring “click next” compliance training, engage learners and give them a reason to seek out and understand the policies.
