Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller

Use Stories in eLearning: 6 Tips to Bring Out Your Inner Storyteller | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

"Stories have captivated us as a species since the dawn of man. Through stories, we have passed on traditions, remembered the past, and carried information across the millennia. 

And it's not just our ancestors who harnessed the power of stories, either. Stories still work to reach people, which is why we see businesses turning to the power of storytelling in branding efforts, marketing campaigns, corporate strategies, and even eLearning courses and business presentations."

How can we engage eLearners? How about using storytelling techniques. Stories engage us and they will also engage students. This post explores this, providing an infographic as well as discussing the power of stories before moving on to explore ways to bring storytelling into eLearning. 

There are six components that are discussed:

1. Know your audience.

2. Use a structure.

3. Appeal to emotions.

4. Intensify the story with visuals.

5. Make the stories relevant to the course.

6. Pay attention to detail.

As always additional resources are linked to in most of the six components with more at the end of the post. The components shared in this post also apply to teaching in a face2fact classroom, or  blended classroom. As you work on new lessons this year consider using these components to help design the lesson.

Once upon a time... Narratives are a great way to get information across.

Do you work with older students? Then you will enjoy this article about storytelling in learning. Great for introducing studnets to the need to structure online presentations as well as traditional, writing tasks.


Reading a good online presentation (from TED maybe) and then asking students to map the presentation to the story outline in this article will reinforce this learning for them.


Let me know if you give this a go - I've done similar activities with videos and story structures in primary schools and the students loved investigating the hidden structure!
