Teaching through story telling has been recognized as a pedagogical paradigm that enhances learning outcomes at many levels. Understanding life, science and even technological concepts becomes easier if the educational content is presented as a well-linked narrative. Movement Oriented Design (MOD) is a paradigm that views any presentation as a story telling artifact. From Aristotle’s time we have known that an engaging story must have a good beginning, middle and end. The core component of any MOD-based presentation is a Movement, which is a micro story with its own Begin, Middle and End components. Technology enhanced teaching and learning systems are now widely used; our aim is to enhance the learning outcomes that can be obtained from such systems. This paper proposes that the Movement Oriented Design paradigm can be used to enhance the pedagogy of e-Learning, for it uses story telling at its core.
