What is the one single thing you need for effective learning of any type – live or virtual classroom, online training, video? Good stories, of course.

The longer I have worked in the eLearning industry the more I have come to recognize the power of good stories. I have used stories everywhere: in scenarios and interactive video activities, as concrete examples to simplify a complex concept, and in motivational speeches made by top leaders. You name it – my “story factory” creates it.

Good stories grab the learner’s attention and make your learning content stick.

Even an experienced story factory like myself needs new, fresh ideas for using stories in online learning. That’s why I am starting Acumen’s course Storytelling for Change course next week. More to come as the course advances…
