So everybody in L&D is talking about storytelling as a critical key in getting a message across and this is true. But did you know that this only half the truth?

If your story is good but your visual expression of it is bad, your story will only do good on paper.

So with this a little more info by "Film Riot" on how you could translate a story through visual composing (holds true for also other things than video). We will post more on this.

Hope it helps to translate that great story you wrote for your learning solution.

As always, Cheers!

I know it has probably been repeated to "death"... 😉 But we had a vILT meeting this week with a PPT presentation of what I thought............ o_0

The only thing that stuck is the subject title because of the emotion I had with the presentators design of every slide, FOR 87 SLIDES...

Actually thinkng of it, indirectly and unintentional a part of the presenters intention was met.... 🙂

Anyway it got me thinking again on the subject of "Death by PowerPoint". So for those wanting to present material through PowerPoint in a better manner and havent seen it yet, a repost on "Death By PowerPoint". Hope it serves you(r users) well. 🙂

If you have not seen it ,then here is a great Tedx talk on what to contemplate about when designing and developing an e-learning.

Some people from this age, like Walt Disney and Joseph Campbell, truly understood this. E.g. George Lucas took this principle and the result of that is that current generations now can utter more words from mind on his science fiction stories, tell us more about how that science fiction universe and its tech works than that they are able to understand, restate and abide to the basic real life needed safety principles of a company... Shouldn't this tell us designers something?

Storytelling / Edutainment all the way!

Tell us if you agree or disagree with this talk and why.
