About learning scenarios

Evans and Taylor (2005) 1 define scenarios “as stories focused on a user or group of users, which would provide information on the nature of the users, the goals they want to achieve, and the context in which the activities will take place. They are written in ordinary language, and are therefore understandable to various stakeholders, including users. They may also contain different degrees of detail.” 

Furthermore, Carroll (1999) 2 attributes five characteristic elements to e-Learning scenarios: they include or presuppose a setting, they include agents or actors and each agent or actor has typically goals or objectives; every scenario has at least one agent and at least one goal. Finally all scenarios include sequences of actions and events, things that happen and change the scenario setting.

How to add a new learning scenario

To write a new learning scenario, just choose Add Page (from menu top left) and then choose "New learning scenario (no table) or "New learning scenario (table) " (almost like the image below shows). Give a descriptive name to your new learning scenario, for example "Learn source criticism by investigating Wikipedia articles", or perhaps "Villa Mimmi – portraying fellow humans using a wiki 1" (generated from a template without a table) or "Villa Mimmi – portraying fellow humans using a wiki 2" (generated from a template with a table).

Some of the existing learning scenarios can be considered blockbusters:

Learning scenario template

The template is based of the state of the art analysis performed, and looking at previous projects. If you want to change the Learning scenario template it is available here: Learning scenario template (table) and Learning scenario template (no table)
