Engaging Interactions for eLearning


Just found out through Tony Karrer's blog that B.J. Schone has published a free ebook with "25 ways to keep learners awake and intrigued."

You'll notice that you can develop most of these easily in Adobe Captivate. Imagine developing an Interactive Timeline using the slidelet functionality. The learner rolls the mouse over a timeframe and video and audio starts playing or an image of a newspaper scan shows up with audio narration. Or implement Order of Importance with the new sequencing quiz type. And you can of course create Branching stories or Story-based Adventures using the branching functionality.

The ebook is a nice summary of engaging interactions and the knowledge types they support as well as the level of interaction.
