My Experience with Creating a Scenario-based Course: Part 3

In Part 1 of this blog series, I shared my experience about the content acquisition and analysis phase for creating a scenario-based course. In Part 2, I shared how I created a storyline and identified the critical steps in it and further started storyboarding and shared the introduction screen with you. When storyboarding for this course, the single most important thing for me was to keep it conversational and follow the actual lingo that the customer care representatives are supposed to follow.

The introduction screen helped us understand that Lisa was a new joinee in the team and she was about to take her first call. In the next screen, we need to show how she starts the call and what the customer issue was. I got this information by listening to the recorded calls and SME interviews.

Quiz Scope?? what’s that?

It’s always interesting to see how people use question slides, sometimes amongst the content slides as knowledge check questions, sometimes as pre-test and sometimes to validate the learning through a post-test. In any of these scenarios, especially while using the question slides as knowledge check, we hit upon something known as Quiz Scope. What’s that by the way? We all know about it but may not be familiar with the exact terminology ‘Quiz Scope’.

The HTML5 contest has closed- 5 more days to put in your votes!

The Captivate HTML5 contest has closed for entries. The viewing gallery is still open to give you an opportunity to cast your vote. Thank you for participating in this contest. The general interest can be gauged from the fact that many of the top entries have close to 10,000 views and 1,500 FB ‘Likes’ each. If you’re yet to view some of the entries, please do take some time to appreciate the efforts of the community in pioneering HTML5 eLearning 
While many of the entries might not be appreciated for the ID skills, I’m sure the contest helped the community realize the possibilities (and current limitations) of HTML5 eLearning authoring. We had 35 entries in this contest, three of which will receive the iPad. Two of these will be determined based on popular vote, while the third will be awarded by an expert panel – for the best content as judged by them.
In the next few days the team here will also point out the entries they’ve liked. Two entries stood out for me- Continue reading…
