As a designer, you will learn how to use story and game to create transformative learning experiences. The webinar will use real-world examples, demonstrating a range of experiences — from simple scenarios to more elaborate stories that follow a “learning by doing” approach. You will learn how to use the story-arc model to create multi-path, story-driven learning games and simulations. This webinar will focus on how story and game together can provide higher levels of engagement and application, creating more memorable learning experiences.
At the conclusion of this webinar you will learn how to:
- Convert training situations into scenes
- Use the story arc model to identify scene breaks that create multi-path simulations
- Use dramatic elements including character, time and scene to create more realism and engagement
