Process makes you more efficient. And too many Learning Experience Designers are confused about what to do because they don’t really have any systems or processes in place.
Today, I outline a simple three step process for designing scenarios.
Here’s a rundown:
First, you start with some focusing questions, pick a framework, and gather relevant info from an internal expert. (In a nutshell, step one is about getting your head right and tuning your creativity to the right frequency.)
Step two of scenario design is about producing a detailed outline, an interactive outline (choice moments, branching, etc.) and then, finally, a script of the experience.
The third step can be pretty easy. This is where you’ll focus on visual communication and look and feel. I say this is pretty easy because a) more talented graphic designers are entering learning design and b) current software solutions are baking design elements into their solutions.
