Webinar Recording Details


Learners learn best with stories. But do most designers and developers have difficulty creating them? Most often these narratives sound like … “Once upon a time” tales. These are long and laborious to develop. They are expensive and difficult to produce.  So, what is another option to consider? Super short stories! These are very brief and simple but relatable scenarios that quickly convert lesson content into highly engaging lessons. They are cheaper and faster to create.

Topics to cover:
  • Why use short, simple, and easy-to-develop stories?
  • Why avoid long, expensive, and hard to develop stories?
  • Where do you find short and simple stories?
  • What are the 4 key steps to short story creation? 
  • How do make sure your stories connect with the lessons?
  • How do you use an authoring tool like Captivate, Storyline, and Rise  for short story lessons?

Join the webinar and get live demos and source codes for three short lessons authored in Captivate and Storyline
