Examples of interactive/scenario-based software training

Hi heroes, I'm looking to the community for some inspiration. I am creating an elearning course that is heavily conceptual, that talks about tasks our customers need to do during the planning phase of an implementation. I am trying to come up with a creative way to present information. I would like to create something very interactive and story based. (Using Presenter). I don't want to do another boring page turner with slides full of bulleted lists.

Has anybody done a project with any similarities to mine that would be willing to share?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Jackie!  Thank you for your quick response. I do work for a software company, and a lot of the eLearning we do consists of simulations and procedures for working with the software. This project is different because it is more conceptual and process oriented. I am trying to challenge myself to come up with a story-based course that leads the learners through the process.  I am looking forward to checking out your sample.  (I've already viewed and been impressed by some of the other samples you've submitted.)  Thanks again.

That company is still insane for that course.

They've just engaged me to use the exact same approach for another business segment. Managers were literally cheering at the meeting where they were told about it. May seem silly, but when applied with care it's an outstandingly successful approach.

Thanks, Eileen!

If it's a company that isn't currently using a creative approach, the best way to sell the idea is to mock up a great little demo of what you're envisioning. I've NEVER had a client object to a design idea I've demonstrated first.

Good luck to you! I know you can make it great.
