Training 2012 Conference & Expo speaker Cathy Moore shares the "what," "why" and "how" of elearning scenarios. Imagine that you are in a competition to overhaul an information-heavy course so it creates a real change in the real world. What changes would you make? Check out the story-based presentation above to see what one fictional company did.

One of the challenges with using the approach described in the presentation is that it usually requires more design time. Since many clients don’t actually measure the effectiveness of their materials and just want information put online quickly, it can be hard to argue for immersive scenarios. Have you successfully used scenarios? Did you have to convince stakeholders to let you use them?

Want to learn more about applying scenarios to your elearning practice? Cathy's certificate program will use scenario learning to explore the concept and application in more detail at a more advanced level.
