Prompting learners to practice navigating difficult conversations through e-learning is an excellent way to help boost their confidence—and get it right in real life. In this inspiring example featuring a Storyline 360 branching scenario, learners take on the role of a manager and try to uncover why an employee is showing up to work late. Based on their choices, they’re presented with custom feedback to see how different decisions lead to new outcomes.

Creating custom, immersive scenarios like this one is easy in Storyline 360. Combining features like layers, triggers, conditions, and variables lets you create a scenario that feels tailored to your learners’ needs.
