Complex Learning Scenario Course Help
Oct 28, 2014
I'm seeking information on a design idea in a retail environment in a sort of "Day in the Life" concept where learners are faced with daily challenges and must walk through the day making decisions and solving problems.
This concept is not just a traditional branching scenario with three options (good, better, best), although some of the branching will occur that way. The learners will experience real consequences to real decisions, resulting in "what happens next." We aren't necessarily going to "score" the outcome. Instead, we hope to use it as an assessment to determine if the learner needs remediation before moving forward.
For example, if Bob, the General Manager, goes through a series of conflict branching conversation scenarios with Joe, his vendor, and ends the conversation like "this", he moves onto the next retail leader challenge. The next challenge might be a new team member, Jill, who needs developmental assistance. Each scenario is competency-based and designed to be a behavioral assessment, not necessarily scored.
It's going to be a huge undertaking. We already have scenarios in mind. I'm just thinking through system limitations (Storyline, LMS (SCORM) scoring, etc.) I've never created anything this complex (systematically). Have you ever created anything like this?
What a cool time to be in instructional design! :) Ideas welcome!
