When David Anderson announced this week’s e-learning challenge would involve avatars, I thought this might be a good time for a sequel. We find ourselves back again at Bert’s Sliders. This time, instead of learning how to cook the perfect burger like we did in Part One, instead we’re going to concentrate on customer service issues.
In keeping with the challenge, the first thing the learner does is select their avatar, a character which will represent them throughout the interaction. Considering how I wanted the interaction to look, instead of using variables and triggers, I just used simple navigation triggers to move from one scene or slide to the next.
Some of you will know that the 3rd avatar is really Bert himself which I’m hoping does not cause confusion as Bert is supposed to be the proprietor of the restaurant and you are actually an employee working for him. But sometimes, I like to just run with the absurdity and let the cognitive dissonance remain. Maybe Bert has a split personality, or perhaps the learner is suffering from “delusions of grandeur”?
So what we have hee-agh is your basic branching scenarios with three possible answers and feedback for each. Nutin’ fancy, but it’s fun. Let me know what you think. Click here to play.
