Storytelling - Graphic Novels - eLearning

Web Comics Review

Web Comics Review has a great article on the history of web comics and in reading it I am reminded how fun graphic novels are to engage in. And also, how much we can learn by following an engaging story line.

Stories put information and data into a familiar context for the recipient. Using short metaphors in our training is helpful, however I've seen very few well designed metaphors or stories within eLearning that are graphically represented utilizing the design style of the graphic novel or comic strip.

Everyone loves a good comic strip. What a fun way to translate information into meaning for our end users.
