You have a slew of tools to choose from to author eLearning, but regardless of the tools, creating a unique user experience that engages learners is important and often relies on your skills as a storyteller. One way to improve your eLearning storytelling skills is through comic book theory. Using special tricks and tips from comic books and graphic novels, you can create a unique user experience—no matter which authoring tool or platform you use.

In this session, you’ll gain insight on how to improve creative storytelling skills and how to use comic book theory to develop engaging, learner-centric content. You’ll also learn the “language” of comics, graphic novels, and sequential art and how they effectively communicate within the visual milieu. Finally, you’ll explore real-world examples of how to implement these newfound storytelling skills in eLearning.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About comic book theory
  • How to improve your storytelling skills
