eLearning doesn’t have to be a content-focused experience that leaves learners overwhelmed and wondering how it all applies to them. Incorporating storytelling into your design is a great way of making content easier to understand and feel relevant to the learner. But how well you design stories into your courses is what determines its success.

In this session, you’ll learn four primary steps for using storytelling to enhance your elearning courses. First, you’ll learn strategies for finding the stories you’ll need to tell. Next, you’ll learn tips for using instructional design strategies for building character-driven narratives. Then, we’ll discuss how to bring a story to life by creating an environment and adding story elements that engage learner emotions. Finally, we’ll discuss story structure and how it influences how the learner will experience your story.

Learning Objectives

After this session, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe four strategies for incorporating stories into your elearning design
  • Explain the significance of creating character-driven stories
  • Use the story spine to find and structure stories of transformation
