Today we’ll explore the power of adding story elements to your instructional design to leverage creativity and engagement.

We’ll investigate how to:

  • Frame and wrap your quest in a spellbinding story
  • Access public domain stories to find characters that you can use to build your storyline
  • Experience different story tools to help you
  • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
  • Create a narrative thread that pulls through the entire game
  • Craft a compelling storyline using the 4 elements of a story:  characters, plot, conflict, and resolution

Giving your team a rational argument for increasing profits, backed up with all sorts of numbers, is liable to put them to sleep. If, on the other hand, you link your efforts to an epic adventure – destroying the aliens, beating back the zombies, or even solving the unsolvable mystery… they’re far more likely to remember – and act – upon what you’re saying.

Our minds remember stories, especially stories with emotions attached, much better than they remember lists, or even ideas. Build your gamification quest around a compelling and engaging storyline.
