Interactive Conversations Make Text Fun and Engaging #90

Interactive Conversations #90: Challenge | Recap

Hi. Can we talk?

Don’t take this the wrong way, okay? But a friend of a friend knows someone who works with a guy who overheard some people talking about our e-learning. Turns out people think the courses are a little.... boring.

I know... Shocker, right?

Anyway, I don’t think they were trying to be mean. They just felt that, lately, the courses were a little stale.

But that’s okay, because I saw an e-learning example this week that could really help.

What do you say? Are you up for some ideas that could transform text-heavy slides into lively conversations?

What do you want to do?

Right on! I know you’re going to like this.

Is that wicked cool or what?! I never thought text could be so lively... so engaging!

When you think about it, the course is really just a linear presentation. It’s the personalized audio responses and questions that make it feel like so much more.

Building something like that would be a breeze in Articulate Storyline or even PowerPoint.

The real challenge here is crafting the informal tone and questions to simulate playful conversations.

And that’s what this week’s challenge is all about!

Challenge of the Week

This week your challenge is to create an example based on the interactive conversation model. 

Feel free to take on any topic you like. Keep it simple and have fun with it. Don't worry about sharing a polished example. The focus this week is on conversational writing.
