Scenario-Based Training for Workforce L&D How scenario-based training reduces the time required to develop expertise,
When learners make mistakes in a branching scenario, do you restart the scenario from the beginning or do you go back partway, maybe even just one single step?

On reddit, someone asked how to manage the complexity of branching scenarios and keep them
My response to three common objections to using stories for learning: “Not everyone can be a storyteller,” “Stories are a waste of learners’ time,” and “Stories don’t work for all kinds of training.”
One of the common objections I hear to using storytelling in training is that “stories don’t work for all kinds of training.” Those who are skeptical of storytelling often claim it doesn’t help software training. However, I think stories can have a place in some software training.
Great science fiction stories have a compelling villain that allows the heroes to be heroic. Does the same apply to storytelling for learning? Should we personify the conflict by using a villain?
In this post, I’ll explain how to write and structure the conversation between two characters to deliver eLearning content.
Several studies have found learners can remember information in a narrative format better than bullet points. One strategy for creating a narrative is delivering content with two narrators having a conversation rather than the traditional approach of a single narrator lecturing. Instead of one voice acting as an instructor, this approach lets learners listen in on two characters who are talking about it.
