About the webinar

These days, there’s a lot of emphasis on using “scenarios” in training and development – even technical training. Is it all just hype? or can scenarios really make a difference? Join STC IDL SIG Member Kim Lindsey for an introduction to this training format. Together, we’ll answer questions like:
  • How long do scenarios have to be?
  • When are scenarios appropriate, and are there times when they are not appropriate?
  • Are scenarios just for e-learning?
  • Do you have to use video? audio? special software tools?
  • Can scenarios be used in technical training?
  • What is a “branching scenario”?
  • What are some formats for writing drafts of scenario-based training?
We’ll also collaborate to transform some instructional text into a scenario-based design, so you can see how it’s done. You’ll leave with fresh ideas that can enhance your projects and give you a creative edge.
