OVERVIEW: This five-minute, microlearning module was developed in Captivate 2017 for the Articulate eLearning Weekly Challenge. The module shows learners how to perform a simple, five-step yoga pose: Vasisthasana (Side Plank). The script is written in an expository writing style because the goal is to impart procedural knowledge (inform).

METHODOLOGY: The writing tone is formal and technical; and the content is presented from a second-person perspective, so that the target audience — first-time yogis with very basic knowledge of yoga poses — can easily grasp the steps of the pose.
