E-Learning for the Food and Beverage Industry #116

Food & Beverage E-Learning Examples #116: Challenge | Recap

This week’s challenge is focused on the food and beverage industry.

The industry challenges are designed to help you build your portfolio around specific markets and industries.

The more diverse your portfolio becomes, the more appealing you’ll be to a wider network of potential clients. Building industry-specific examples also helps you practice your course-building skills because you're creating something new or different.

Here’s a list of industry-specific topics we’ve already covered:

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to design an e-learning game, quiz, or interaction for the food and beverage industry.

Because this is such a broad industry, we’ll focus on specific areas in future challenges. For this week, choose anything that's generally related to the food and beverage industry.

Here are a few food and beverage examples to give you an idea of what’s already been shared in the community:

Restaurant-Themed Branching Scenario

Good use of scenarios to help service staff practice greeting restaurant customers.

Coffee Pot Drag-and-Drop

Here’s a technical example that uses drag-and-drop to help servers practice placing items on a carrying tray. After placing the coffee pot on the dray, learners are asked to justify their decision in a follow-up question.

Here's a quick entry for this week's challenge. I'm trying to improve my graphic design sense as I have a very strong instructional background but not a strong graphic design background. I'd love suggestions on how to better layout the question slide to make it more visually appealing. I also experimented for the first time with a different story size that I think would work on mobile devices. If I have time, I'd also like to work more to see if I can recreate this using random numbers or question banks or to allow the learner to select how much money the customer gave them to pay. http://googledrive.com/host/0B8NHHWkmIPE6VlgzZncxYjJfY1U I've updated my file to now include a time limit on answering the questions simulating real life time pressures.
