How much time do you spend on your scripts? Most often, the script is written at the end as a means of tying things together. But what if a script could do more than that? What if it could provide a solid foundation for your entire program and even work hand in hand with your instructional design to capture users' attention and design exceptionally engaging eLearning programs? You can have the best voice talent in the world, recorded in a state-of-the-art studio, and coupled with an inventive program design, but if your script is written like a textbook, your eLearning will still be boring.

Participants in this session will learn how to elevate an eLearning script from an afterthought to a crucial, integral foundation for the entire project. You’ll get real, practical techniques to help build a script from the ground up, including creative concepting, script structure, flow structure, and writing effective narration and dialogue.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to think creatively around a learning topic to maximize interest
  • Basic skills on scriptwriting structure and conveying a tone
  • How to prepare a script so your voice talent and your team understands exactly what you want
  • How to write powerful case studies and dialogues
Audience: Designers, developers, and others at all levels who are not trained in scriptwriting, or for those with scriptwriting experience who want to develop their skills further. Bring examples of your projects for discussion by the group and possible brainstorming and developing further in the session.
