“Our lives are made up of stories” – according to Mark Zuckerburg (Facebook CEO), “that is why we provide “TIMELINE” in Facebook because we help you tell your life-stories.

From Confucius to Zuckerburg, people learn from each other by sharing experiences and stories. Nowadays, this fact becomes increasingly significant with the advent and continuous development of mobile learning, on-the-job learning support and communities of learners.

The challenge has been how to design learning points that are story-driven to help learners learn instantly.  How do we use the power of story dynamics, both telling and listening, as antidotes to boring elearning programs?

Topics to cover:
  • Gain insights from scientific research that prove how stories boost learning, retention and application
  • Understand the dynamic structure of stories
  • Design eLearning by superimposing story structures and classical rich content elearning
  • Revitalizing learning objectives, lessons, exercises and test questions with stories
  • Finding sources in the workplace for stories, anecdotes, meme, metaphors, etc.
  • Learn the step-by-step approach of converting a small lesson into story-based eLearning
  • Preview demos and examples
