Hospitality Training: How to Set a Proper Table #341

How to Set a Dinner Table #341: Challenge | Recap

Do you know the difference between a salad fork and a dessert fork? How can you tell which glass is used for which drink? And where should they be placed on the table?

Whether you're managing restaurants, working in the service industry, or planning a dinner party for friends, you need to know basic table setting rules and etiquette. And that's what this week's challenge is all about!

Simulating Real-World Activities in E-Learning

Table-setting activities are a great way to give learners a chance to try new tasks or processes in a realistic way. They're also an ideal way for course designers to practice building real-world activities.

In this example, learners click each utensil to place it on the table. After placing the utensil, learners drag and drop the item to its correct location. 

This activity isn't designed as a regular quiz, so there's no correct or incorrect feedback. Instead, feedback is available in a hint button that lets learners compare their work with an expert's recommendations.
