ELH Challenge 18

When characters are engaging, they may help learners feel emotionally connected to the content. Also, characters and the stories built around them make learning more appealing, because our brains are wired for stories.  Characters can also be interwoven into games and challenges.  (

The challenge is to share an interaction to show how to use characters in e-learning. I like using them in my interactions with different roles. Below can you see three different ways of using characters.

  • In my first example, I used a character who introduces the target grammar content to the learners.

  • In my second example, I used characters to tell a joke in an interactive way.

  • For the last one, I’d like to share an example which I created by using a template that was shared by Fastercourse. You can download this free template and read a blog post about it here. Although simplicity of the design and usage of the colors are perfect, I wanted to improve it a bit more by adding some more characters with different game elements and building a simple story around them.
