With Quandary, instructors can create Web-based Action Mazes. An Action
Maze is a type of interactive case-study which is preprogrammed by the
instructor. It consists of decision points and options that the learner
can select. On choosing one of the options, the resulting situation is
then presented, again with a set of options. This process is continued
until the maze has been completed. Action mazes can be used for many
purposes, including problem-solving, diagnosis, and procedural training.
For more information on Action Mazes and examples of how they can be used in instruction, see the Quandary Web site at http://www.halfbakedsoftware.com/quandary.php
Quandary is shareware. It is available by download
