Stories by the teacher and stories by the learnerGood instructors often tell stories and effective learners frequently remember the stories better than any other part of the course. Such stories are an indispensable part of much soft-skills training.

If the words and tone of voice of the instructor are essential ingredients in classroom learning—well then, you had better find a way to include them in your online training. Probably the most important use of audio is to tell stories.

About the Example
