How to Teach Very Complex Ideas with Story-Based eLearning - Tip #10

Some scenarios are glorified memorization tests or branching multiple choice tests.

Memorization branching exercises should not be confused with story-based scenarios which are specifically driven by motivational events to help learners discover learning experiences.  
How do story-based scenarios help learners discover critical context?

In this example, I want to share an excellent way that Psychological Associates, Inc. used Gina's case to teach learners the concepts of PA's Dimension model.  In this scenario, do the two-step process.

Step 1, click to view Gina's case  
Step 2, click to continue - to see how Gina's case is used to learn the PA's Dimension Model.

Scenario-based events are driven by motivational events that result in Learning experiences.
