  • 16 Ideas for Scenario-based E-learning
  • The health sector and scenario- based e-learning
  • Story: time, place, character, emotion
  • Idea 1: Read the work of Melanie C. Green and Timothy C. Brock on narrative
  • Idea 2: Narrative has more power to engage than non-narrative communication.
  • Idea 3: Narrative transportation can influence an audiences beliefs without them knowing it.
  • Idea 4: Subconscious influence via narrative transportation is effective in sneaking around resistance to a message.
  • Idea 5: Narrative can create a sense of self-efficacy.
  • Idea 6: Narrative can create para-social relationships.
  • Idea 7: Narrative makes attitude change more persistent by engaging at the cognitive and affective level.
  • Idea 8: Narrative may not be as suitable for clear, unambiguous information transfer.
  • Idea 9: Read Ruth C. Clarks work on scenario-based e-learning. Scenario-based e-learning is a pre-planned guided inductive learning environment designed to accelerate expertise in which the learner assumes the role of an actor responding to a work-realistic assignment or challenge, which in turn responds to reflect the learners choices (Clark, 2013, p. 5).
  • Idea 10: Fake branching scenarios can save money.
  • Idea 11: Users still feel in control in fake branching scenarios.
  • Idea 12: Most current e-learning scenarios lack the freedom of choice: Choose my own adventure.
  • Idea 13: True role plays let you see the world through other peoples eyes.
  • Idea 14: Making wrong or bad decisions in character is educationally useful.
  • Idea 15: RPGs are a modern version of mask work.
  • Idea 16: RPGs let you explore your own personalities.
