Scenario Based Learning Interactive (SBLi)

Software for creating interactive e-Learning scenarios

what is sbl interactive sbli
What is SBL Interactive (SBLi)?
  • An authoring tool (builder) that enables you to build multimedia scenarios easily
  • A client-based player to deliver scenarios locally (on CD or via a local network)
  • A server-based player and scenario manager to deliver scenarios over the web
what does sbli do
What does SBLi do?
  • Enables teachers/educators/trainers to develop engaging multimedia scenarios
  • Based on Problem Based Learning
    • Challenges students to learn through engagement in a project or problem
    • Develops problem solving skills through case studies
what is problem based learning
What is Problem Based Learning?

“The principal idea behind PBL is that students’ learning should be based on carefully designed problems that demand from the learner: acquisition of critical knowledge; problem solving proficiency; self-directed learning strategies and team participation skills.” …

PBL “replicates the commonly used systemic approach to resolving problems or meeting challenges that are encountered in life and career” (Barrows and Kelson:

good pbl scenarios
Good PBL scenarios
  • Should encourage students to decide their own ways of defining, analysing, researching and solving the problem
  • Present as many “real-life” possibilities as are feasible, including “red herrings” which may send students on a path which may not be fruitful
  • Depending on the field of study and the specific problem context, there may be no single right answer, so all paths may be valid and all outcomes realistic
  • Validity of the process is often a major goal of PBL
origins of sbli
Origins of SBLi
  • Agricultural Problem Based Learning tool developed with Massey University (NZ) over 12 years ago.

what topics can sbli scenarios address
What topics can SBLi scenarios address?

There is no limit. SBLi scenarios have already been developed in the following disciplines

who is using sbli
Who is using SBLi?

SBLi scenarios have been or are being developed specifically for -

  • High school students - BSDE, Corinda, Toowong, NSW, ACT Canberra
  • Undergraduates - number of universities in Australia and overseas (including NZ, UK, Canada, Japan)
  • Undergraduate text book users – linked to text book purchase
  • In-house staff training (Qld NRW)
  • Professional, in-service training – Legal Services Commission
some scenario examples

Some scenario examples

  • Moreton Bay marine field course2nd year Marine Science (UQ)
  • Engineers without Borders 1st year undergraduate engineering (National)
  • Series of genetics modulesLife science undergraduates (Manchester University, UK)

  • Moreton Bay marine field course
    • 2ndyear Marine Science (The University of Queensland)
    • The prestigious ASCILITE award was presented for the ‘Habitat Change in Moreton Bay, A Field Study for Marine Scientists’ scenario authored by Associate Professor Catherine Lovelock. Featured on our SBLi Homepage.
the benefits of sbli
The benefits of SBLi
  • Easy to build & modify scenarios, no programming skills required
  • Interactive – requires active involvement, responses and decision making by students
  • Provides virtual “real-world” experiences
  • Integrates components within and across disciplines
  • Enables interactive testing and feedback
  • Develops students’ problem solving skills
  • Flexible delivery of scenarios – in class, via CD or online
what about future sustainability
What about future sustainability?
  • The SBLi platform is designed generically, making it easier to upgrade the software to utilise new technologies
  • SBLi has an “Export scenario schema” function and most content is in HTML so that scenarios can be readily extracted from SBLi and used on other platforms
  • SBLi use at UQ is developing expertise and approaches that will support a scenario based learning strategy, whatever the technology
  • We are working with other institutions to create a community of practice for sharing experiences and content
  • A library of images, logos and scenarios is being planned that can be accessed and shared within and between institutions
