Article Title: Draft a Branching Scenario in 6 Steps
Publication: Integrated Learnings: eLearning
Summary: Scenario-based training prompts learners to solve problems they encounter on the job, helping to ensure they are prepared to perform their jobs successfully. This article describes six simple steps for designing a branching scenario.
In a branching scenario, an eLearning slide might only provide the start of a situation. Perhaps the first segment of a conversation or an initial glimpse into a problem. Based on the information available, learners choose their next step from a few options provided. And instead of giving them feedback like “correct” or “incorrect,” their choice takes them to a slide that describes the next segment of the scenario…a segment that’s a direct consequence of the option they chose. The scenario continues like this, over a series of a few slides, until learners reach an outcome.
