Scenarios and near-real stories add life to eLearning courses and make the content look and sound more meaningful. It also makes it easy for the students to understand concepts by looking at the examples and taking decisions in the scenario. They get a perfect simulated environment to practice the skills or modify behavior and the best part with scenario-based learning is that they are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them, without causing any harm whatsoever.
In spite of these benefits, you will find very few people creating scenario-based courses. Most of them rather settle for information-heavy eLearning courses. They confess that they understand the value of creating a scenario-based course, but they opt for a page-turner as it takes a lot of effort and time to design and build scenarios. So to lessen the burden for eLearning developers, we’ve introduced scenario templates in Adobe Presenter 9 which can be used to build decision points inside an eLearning course. It’s pretty easy to use these templates. Watch this short video to learn about the workflow: Continue reading…

Before we look at that fun course that I worked on, let’s talk about enhancements we have introduced in this update: Continue reading…

It’s always a good idea to add audio to your courses in the form of voice over. It saves the learners from reading a lot of onscreen text, and helps you in effectively using the screen real estate to graphically represent the concepts.
If you want to go a step further, videos are an ideal solution here. You can hear as well as see the trainer/coach. But again, some part of the screen area has to be assigned for the coach video. It’s easier to do so for some of the screens, but if the screens are overcrowded with graphical assets, it becomes difficult to accommodate the coach video in the course.
