This webinar presents a model for building meaningful experiences to engage the learner in place of the standard “tell than test” approach to storyboarding and scripting of eLearning. Among the important factors that establish purpose in an eLearning interaction, CONTEXT is the most fundamental and yet is often the most overlooked. We will explore several strategies to structure contextual learning and illustrate the power of these techniques with real-life examples that rely on strong context to enable richly-rewarding interactive experiences.
In this one-hour webinar you will:
- Experience the motivating result of context-embedded eLearning designs
- Compare strategies for creating meaningful context online
- Generate ideas for enhancing designs through extending ideas from actual e-learning modules being used in the industry
