Video on How to Use Branching Scenario Templates in iSpring

Have you ever used Branching Scenarios in your iSpring courses? These templates are great to have in your e-Learning assets. At eLearning Brothers, we use templates called, Conversational Scenarios, or as some people call them Branching Scenarios. Each Branching Scenario simulates a variety of office conversations meant for speeding up your development and creating engaging interactions. You can insert any of these PowerPoint scenarios into your iSpring courses.

6 Steps to “iSpringify” Your Courses

Here are six steps on how you can "iSpringify" your scenario template:

  1. Download a scenario from the eLearning template library
    iSpring Templates are available for download for all current Template Library subscribers. You can become a member of the eLearning Template Library and get tons of great e-Learning templates.

  2. Open the scenario Template in PowerPoint
    All you need to do is open a new template in PowerPoint.

  3. Go to the iSpring tab and select “Presentation Explorer”
    Find the iSpring tab and click the Presentation Explorer. This will give you a variety of options so you can work with your scenario template.

  4. Nest the slides under the appropriate slides
    The main thing here is you will need to figure out what slide will come up next after you click on the interaction. You will want to nest each of your slides by demoting the slide, using the back arrow, to be nested under the main slide. This helps organize your slides to know which ones go together. Your learner will appreciate this too.

  5. Label the slides
    Go through and label each slide Question 1, Question 2, Question 3, etc. Once you have these labels, you will want to set up the branching.

  6. Set each ‘next’ and ‘back’ button
    The helpful tip here is to give the learner the option to go backwards in the course, but not allowing them to skip through the questions. In my video, I can show you how to do this in more detail.
