Why we like it

  • Case study-based decision making.
  • Good use of relevant real life examples to think about and compare with what actually happened.
  • Nice use of polling showing the results from other users.
  • The resource is followed up with related learning opportunities.

How to improve this elearning

This kind of decision making has great potential for compliance topics. Short decision making quizzes can be used to increase a learner’s emotional engagement particularly if there is a real life narrative.

To engage learners further, you could give learners a choice about what happens next. This would get people actively involved, and allow learners to test out what they might do if faced with similar circumstances.

This could act as a diagnostic tool to find out what kind of decision maker they are or which skills they might need to develop.
