Using Scenarios in eLearning (My #TK11 Presentation)

What’s the most boring eLearning project you’ve had to work on lately?

This is the question I posed to the group at my presentation here at ASTD’s TechKnowledge in San Jose. 

We then proceeded to have a conversation about a lot of really boring things people are working on: compliance training, policy training, product knowledge training, systems training.  Boring, boring stuff.

And then we took a look at some simple ways you can incorporate a more human voice (my mantra: it’s all about the people, man!) into your eLearning – to create something less boring, more relevant without completely blowing your budget on high-end Hollywood style video.  The truth is you can do a lot with text/graphics or text/graphics/audio. 

It was a great group, some lively discussion, great questions and lots of examples.

I showed a lot of demos – here you’ll see static screen shots of stuff I showed, but not all the details.  Hope it gives you some ideas just the same.
