Instructional design for scenarios: sample and useful tool

Happily, you can use a simple tool called Twine to easily draft the scenario and produce it. In this post we’ll look at a scenario that I wrote to demonstrate Twine’s basic features and to make a point about teaching through stories. In the scenario, you’re a journalist in a hurry to get to a hot story in Zekostan, and your “guide” can’t speak English or drive. You have to quickly learn the necessary Zeko terms to navigate the roads and respond to events along the way. Twine: a tool for creating interactive stories. TiddlyWiki - a reusable non-linear personal web notebook. Elearning example: Branching scenario. You’re a US Army sergeant in Afghanistan.
