A solution looking for a problem - suggestions
Oct 16, 2011
I wanted to try building a story-based training with a Halloween B-horror theme, just as an excercise and an excuse to test some design concepts, but I'm at a complete mental block on what the mock-training should actually be about. Ideally this winds up in my production template folder as an example of finished work, so I suppose it would help to have a real topic. As you can probably tell, I'm silly, and while I'm definitely making something tounge-in-cheek, it would be nice if it wasn't a total joke for the sake of using it professionally later on.
In a nut shell, I built a haunted house as a non-linear training menu. The students can go in and trigger their way forward by clicking different doors. Some doors will open silly tangents, like spiders or B-horror clips, and some will be useful content with a story (a maniac mansion rehash most-likely). the overall idea is to show how humor, story, and a little bit of freedom can move the student willingly through a training.
So I thought I'd ask you all for some ideas. A "real" topic would be ideal, but silly ideas on content, favorite horror cliches and general course design would all be fun to hear about.
Thanks in advance,
