Joshua Roberts - Video Games to Create Powerful Scenario-Based Learning

Recently Joshua Roberts wrote an intriguing blog article about instructional design -- Choices and Decisions in E-Learning – What We Can Learn From The WalkingDead (Video Game) Series – I was hooked . Immediately I thought, “Who is this guy? I need to connect with him today!"
And, this week on Gamification Talk Radio, Joshua and I explored how to take advantage of video games in the world of learning.

Examining the best aspects of video games and how we can apply that information in Instructional Design and E-Learning development, this short interview gives you creative inspiration from some popular video games and dissects the instructional theories game developers use to portray information to the player.

The focus is on creating powerful and engaging scenario based learning and systems training.
