Scenarios

  1. 1. ScenariosDebbie RichardsCreative Interactive Ideasdebbie@cre8iveii.comhttp://twitter.com/cre8iveiihttp://cre8iveii.blogspot.com/
  2. 2. Scenarios1. You will learn best practices for writing and creating branching or "soft-skills" scenarios.2. I will demonstrate Rapid Development tools used to create scenarios.3. You will create your own branching scenario.
  3. 3. ScenariosA scenario can put the course content intoa context that is relevant to the learnersbecause they can use the information in areal world setting.• The learner is presented a problem and must choose a response.• The learners responses determine the path through the scenario.
  4. 4. WRITING SCENARIOS
  5. 5. Types• Problem based learning• Puzzle based Learning• Learning by doing• Associative Learning• Case based Learning• Character based Learning
  6. 6. Flow• Describe the scenario• Describe content concerning the topic• Describe a problem – could use characters• Give an opportunity to the learner to make a decision• Offer some choices• Offer some feedback which will lead to the next problem based scenario and topic
  7. 7. Tips• Start with a goal• Provide key data• Present options• Show what happens• Link to further learninghttp://www.kineo.com/elearning-tips/top-11-ok-heres-the-scenario.html
  8. 8. Idea 1Tell the story and then ask somequestions• Tell your story – as always, keep it short and sharp.• And make it relevant to the content.• When it’s done, ask a series of questions to go a little deeper, confirm understanding, and – most importantly – forge a memorable connection in the learner’s brain.http://www.kineo.com/elearning-tips/tip-40-three-ways-to-use-scenarios.html
  9. 9. Idea 2Ask questions throughout the scenario• At crucial points in the conversation you stop and ask for the learner’s input: “Joe’s not sure what to do next? What would you advise him to do?”• The learner chooses from one of a set of plausible options.http://www.kineo.com/elearning-tips/tip-40-three-ways-to-use-scenarios.html
  10. 10. Idea 3Use questions for branching.• As you design a branching program, first set out the “perfect route”.• That is, go through the entire scenario the right way.• Get that documented, and then do some critical error analysis to find those natural points where learners diverge from the ‘Yellow Brick Road’.http://www.kineo.com/elearning-tips/tip-40-three-ways-to-use-scenarios.html
  11. 11. Keep in MindRegardless of which approach you end upusing, keep in mind the key traits of asimulation:• Accurate representation of real situations• Opportunities to make realistic choices• Accurate representation of the consequences• Feedback and remediation on suboptimal choiceshttp://www.kineo.com/elearning-tips/tip-40-three-ways-to-use-scenarios.html
  12. 12. ExamplesShow examples that I’ve collected….• http://www.articulate.com/rapid-elearning/how-to- add-scenarios-to-your-rapid-elearning-courses/• Captivate Sample• Thiagi card trick
  13. 13. REVIEW INFO AND MAKE DECISION
  14. 14. Branching Scenario• The scenarios are interlinked and part of a single story.• The learner responds to one situation and his/her response leads to the next situation.
  15. 15. Review Info and Make Decision• This example allows the learner to review the course content and then make a choice.• Once a choice is selected, the learner is directed to another screen with additional choices.
  16. 16. Getting HomeYou have just been to a concert downtown,and you need to get home. It is midnight.What will you do? – Take a cab. – Go to the bus stop to catch a bus.

  19. 19. Question: How to get homeDecision A1 Decision B1Cab Bus Outcome A1
  20. 20. Question: How to get homeDecision A1 Decision B1Cab Bus Outcome A1 Decision A2 Walk Home Outcome A2

  28. 28. Call your spouse to come get youYou call your spouse, who is happy to comeand pick you up. Youre home in an hour!
  29. 29. Using PowerPoint• Create your own navigation in the PowerPoint slide using hyperlinks• Give the learners the ability to go back and start over
  30. 30. Using Articulate Quizmaker• Use Survey Questions and Blank slides• Create all the questions and then go back and use Feedback/Branching• Make sure “User may attempt quiz” is set to “unlimited times”
