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."

Everybody likes a good story.

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. 

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, August 25, 2014 8:00 PM

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!

Are you interested in creating an eLearning experience for your students, or are currently teaching online, but would like some tips to make your course more effective. This post provides 12 tips that will help you get started (or improve what you may have).

Below are four of the tips. Each is explained in more detail in the post.

* Understand your audience - To keep your audience engaged, you must understand their needs. Who are they? What do they require?

* Don't overload it - It is easy to add more information to a course, but this may overload your students. Be careful about how much is included and consider breaking information into smaller modules so that students can be more successful.

* Interaction to engage learners - Make sure that you design your course so it is interactive. Clicking quickly from one page to another may not help students learn the information. Encourage engagement through the use of quizzes, videos, and other interactive activities.

Much more is included in the post, and you will also find a link to a free e-book called Engage the Unengaged: How to Create More Engaging eLearning Courses.
