How to Survive Anything: E-Learning Edition #332

How to Survive Anything #332: Challenge | Recap

Worst Case Scenarios

In a given scenario, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I know how to tell if a clown is dangerous?
  • Do I know how to leap from a motorcycle into a car?
  • Do I know how to tell if someone is lying to me?

During a recent trip to Sedona, I stumbled upon a survival book covering almost every imaginable situation anyone could find themselves in.

The book is titled The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, and it offers “expert advice for extreme situations.”

The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook

While I don’t anticipate running into a dangerous clown, the book’s actionable steps, simple illustrations, and pro tips convinced me this would make an excellent resource for this week's challenge.

Keep it Simple

You don’t have to build something overly complicated. I like how the book combines bullet points with simple illustrations for each scenario. This format is brilliant for a challenge demo.

How to Fight a Bear

For those of you with extra time or who want to take on something more ambitious, this example from Sarah Hodge is a wonderful example. Sarah packed a lot into this example: motion paths, parallax effects, ambient sounds, quizzing, and more.
