Scenario-Based eLearning (SBL) is a highly-interactive and high-discovery method of learning that puts the learner on the spot. They have proven to help learners learn in areas where the subjects involve risks; emotional experience; behavioral changes; decision making and judgment; in-depth technical skills; and social learning. Unfortunately, many approaches in SBL development tend to overkill SBL design – increasing costs and development time. In this session, you will learn the steps of constructing an SBL successfully, while keeping a lid on budget and time.
This course will help you implement engaging SBLs. Conducted entirely online, this certificate program focuses on effective and cost-effective design and development - practical and useful, not theories or software use. You'll learn how to construct SBLs.
This is an intensive certificate course. You will meet 3 times. Each session runs for 3 hours; the first two hours being instructor-led. During the remaining one hour, you will have the opportunity to do your homework on your own, or stay online and work with/ask questions of your instructor and peers.
You may use the eLearning tools/software you already have.
