We know that people learn quicker and remember the information longer when they use what they have learned right away. One useful tool available for eLearning modules is the branching scenario. Much like the “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, branching scenarios have the learner make choices and see the consequences. The choices they make determine the consequences.
This eLearning sample is a branching scenario from a larger course about the Child Welfare court process. I created this course alone, from conception to final Captivate production. I used a branching scenario to help the learners create a firm connection between the kinds of court dates, the choices the parents make, and the final outcomes.Try making a few different choices as you go through to see how your decisions change the final result.
