Using the Lesson activity, you could develop a branching simulation to test your students’ knowledge at the application level. For example, you could develop a medical simulation where some text and/or an image is embedded on a content page regarding a patient’s complaint. The student could be given two options on the proceeding question page; to order a test, or do nothing. If the student makes the choice to order a test then the test’s ‘results’ will be made available to them, and the student will be given different choices again. Each page could include an option to switch from diagnosis to treatment (and back again) which could lead the student to a different set of options.
