Grisham-esque narrative in a course... ideas for design?
I am hoping I can draw on some ideas from you fantastic folks!
The author of our online continuing education courses has started incorporating his dream of authoring a novel into the course content. He's developed a character who is a verteran claims adjuster and he incorporates a Grisham-esque story into the course. So we will have a bit of story, then go into the material, and kind of flip back and forth.
We are taking this course from being totally text-based in an very old LMS that pulls from word documents as source files to being an interactive course. The problem is trying to figure out how to tell the story... I've looked at all the transparent photographic characters I could find to try to nail down one of them to represent this guy. But the author just doesn't really like any of them. So I can't really use a visual of a person to represent him during the story-telling moments. I'm trying to come up with some other interesting way of displaying those portions of the course.
Any cool ideas out there?
