Slides from the ElNet Webinar - The easy way to design branching scenarios

Branching scenarios are a great way to create realistic and active learning, but they can often be difficult to design. Sprout Labs is developing a new tool for creating branching scenarios called Stem-Builder. This session is all about sharing the process we have developed for designing branching scenarios. This process is inspired by processes used in games design and can be applied to most eLearning development software.
