Scenario-Based eLearning: Using The Power Of Imagination To Help Learners Learn

Looking for an easy and effective solution to add context and storytelling to your eLearning courses?

Try scenario-based eLearning! More precisely, scenarios in eLearning courses:

  • Hook learners emotionally, as they align with the characters and the plot;
  • Offer immersive, active learning, as learners get to act and experience the consequences; and,
  • Help learners become empathetic while observing how their actions affect others.

Scenarios are a great way to engage new hires and veterans alike. That is, they make great learning tools when learners need to know how to reach a specific goal or predict likely outcomes. Furthermore, a scenario can be as compact as a single screen followed by one or numerous decision points, with a unique course of action depending on the learner’s choice.

While it’s easy to get carried away with designing complex scenarios and incorporating fancy elements, the effectiveness lies in designing scenarios learners can relate to, and those that offer solutions to their pain points or work challenges.

For more insights on this very effective eLearning design element, join Shalini Merugu, Director of Learning Solutions at CommLab India in this webinar!

During this session, you will learn:

  • What scenario-based learning is
  • Why use scenario-based learning
  • Types of scenarios
  • Differences between branching and non-branching scenarios
  • Best practices to design effective scenarios
  • Where NOT to use scenario-based eLearning
Keep scenarios simple and manageable—don’t let learners feel they are entering a maze. Capture problems learners face, and decision points they encounter in their daily jobs. Also, get the perspective of top performers. For customer-specific business scenarios, make sure you get input from experts who know their business.
