Scenario-based e-learning (SBeL)—also known as problem-based learning or whole-task learning—is a highly interactive course design that puts the learner in the role of a problem solver responding to realistic workplace problems or situations. The lessons are built around a series of progressively complex workplace assignments or situations. Scenario-based e-learning is a proven method to build critical thinking skills and expertise in on-the-job tasks, especially those that may be unsafe or too infrequent to learn in the workplace.

Many contemporary job roles require problem-solving and critical thinking skills to take on new and unanticipated workplace challenges. Traditional training that uses a directive approach, while useful for procedural learning, lacks what is needed to build problem-solving skills. In addition, some work skills either cannot be practiced at all on the job (due to safety or other high-risk adverse consequences) or can only be learned over a long period of time.
Scenario-based e-learning presents employees with job-realistic situations that often use multimedia to solve them in a matter of minutes instead of days or weeks. This allows scenario-based e-learning to accelerate job competency.
