Written responses/journal pages

I am developing three foreign language courses and trying to up the ante to level 3 interactivity. These are conversations/discussions, so there isn't really a right or wrong answer or a decision/action to be made. So I'm having trouble with the usual branching Challenge, Choice, Consequence scenario.Right now, I've come up with a scenario question that has two branches. At the end of branch 1, learners get the message: "Now let's see what you might have learned if you'd chosen the other option" and they go back to the option they had not chosen. 

Since the learners will have to prepare a report or a brief based on their interactions with the native speakers, I thought I'd have them define the main points or conclusions they could draw from the conversation (as a pick many option) and then write a short (2-3 paragraph) "report" to their supervisor on what they learned. I haven't done much with the text entry quiz option, so I'm not sure how this would work.  I'd also thought about having them "take notes" like in a journal or something as they progressed through the conversation. I was hoping the written responses could be saved/e-mailed to their instructor. We have to have the courses playable on a variety of browsers as well as mobile devices--so javascript code is not really an option. 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
