Adding some interactive decision-making to your rapid elearning course is a good idea. Leslie from Education Breakthrough has a great screencast on how he created a branched interaction in PowerPoint. This can be applied for rapid elearning courses if you’re using a tool like Articulate Presenter as well as something you can do in PowerPoint and present as a .pps file.
Some key points from the tutorial:
- He sets up the scenario. You have a set of criteria with which to evaluate some people.
- You evaluate the people. As you return to the original slide, you notice the person visited has been marked off.
- He provides a tour of the interaction and a flow chart to show how it works.
- Here’s a link to the PDF that explains how he built the branched interaction in PowerPoint.
