Scenario-based elearning can be an effective way to improve your learners engagement levels. Draw inspiration from these four scenario-based elearning examples.

Tom Kuhlmann: Scenario elearning with PowerPoint


Developed by Tom Kuhlmann, this elearning uses powerpoint for storyboarding scenario-based learning. We like how Tom presents an overview of the process, focused less on the content and more on the mechanics of working in PowerPoint. Additionally, you can download the powerpoint file to help design your own scenario elearning.

BBC: Finance for non-financial managers


This elearning game was developed by Leo Learning for the BBC. It won a gold and bronze at the 2011 Elearning Age awards.

What we like:

  • Scenario-based:  Situates the user in the role of decision-maker in front of which a series of characters come to bid for time, money and resources.
  • Tailored feedback at each decision point
  • Each stage is timed – a dynamic counter ups the ante and piles on the pressure to be decisive
