Trailblazing with Articulate Storyline: A Virtual Journey through Rock Bridge Memorial State Park

Date: Fri, Mar 1, 2024
Time: 01:00 PM - 01:45 PM

Join us for a virtual field trip to learn how a team of Mizzou researchers and instructional designers engage Geology students with an interactive Virtual Field Experience (VFE) they created using the Articulate Storyline e-learning platform.

VFEs supplement field education in Geology curricula when those opportunities are limited by inclement weather, inaccessible field sites, or global pandemics. Frequent cancellations of a mandatory field trip to Rock Bridge Memorial State Park led the team to develop a VFE of the park that includes:

  • role-playing elements
  • 360° photographs
  • interactive annotations and quizzes
  • narrated overlays
  • and scavenger hunt activities

The team's research shows that the VFE is as effective as in-person field trips in supporting learning objectives and fostering engagement. Experience it for yourself!
