L&D practitioners are constantly looking for ways to innovate and create more immersive learning experiences, and learners want a deeper interactive experience. Fortunately, the barrier to entry with emerging technology has lowered to allow anyone with an idea to take their designs to the next level. That’s great news, but where does one start? A simulation is one approach to elevate a learning experience, and it starts with design. It starts with a storyboard.

A well-designed scenario can be a great learning experience, but when the solution calls for a simulation, your design strategy needs to change. This session will cover how a simulation is different from a scenario and explore tips for getting started with storyboarding a design for a simulation. You’ll also explore available tools and techniques for effective storyboarding. The important thing to note is design before development; whatever you can design, the technology will always be available.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About the differences between scenarios and simulations
  • The fundamentals of getting started with storyboarding a simulation
  • Why it’s important for design to start on paper before development
