Scenario based learning provides the learner with motivating and engaging learning experiences. Scenarios provide a number of different choices to a question, so the learner can select the correct option to complete the elearning experience. This immerses the learner in the elearning experience because he/she must make a real-life choice to answer the scenario question. According to Whybrow, “Situations which require learners to take action by making decisions and seeing consequences is a much better way of learning than being passive.”[1] Scenarios require learners to actively use the information they have learnt to make the correct decision. This is active learning.
