How can you make computer application training interesting and effective for your learners? Software simulations can be an effective way to train employees on new applications. However, creating complex simulations is expensive and time consuming. Simplistic simulations are often ineffective, resulting in boring eLearning (often referred to as death by PowerPoint).

 In this session participants will learn tips and tricks that can be used to make software simulations much more effective and less time-consuming for the developer. You will explore the value of learner-centric workflow analysis, storyboarding, character development, interactions, and much more.

 In this session, you will learn:

  • About learner-centric workflow, a development approach to creating engaging software simulations
  • Key SME questions
  • How to use simple scenarios via storyboarding and character development
  • Alternatives to tracking completions

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
