During a recent Rapid e-Learning Design course, one of my students asked if it would be possible to create a “parking lot” space where her learners could write notes as they went through the course. She also asked if they would then be able to see a summary of those notes at the end of the course and print them for their review. Although there are many different ways to design something like this, most options will likely involve some use of text variables. After doing some further experimenting in
I love the scrolling panel in Storyline…Is there a way to make it automatically scroll? This is a great question! We liked this question so much, in fact, that we’ve now added the solution to our workshop materials. Let’s jump right into how to build the auto-scrolling panel, and then we’ll look at some possible use cases. Building the Scrolling Panel 1. Insert a Scrolling Panel Tip: Keep in mind that the scrolling panel may cover your content, so you’ll want to make sure it’s out of the way.
When building survey questions in Storyline 2, the Likert question type is a popular option for gathering feedback from learners. After covering this question type in Storyline training, we can almost guarantee we’ll be asked this follow-up question: “Can I require learners to explain why they gave a low value on a Likert scale question?” Or, perhaps you want to gather those glowing review comments for a high rating. Or, find out why someone responded with a “No.” Due to the limitations of the form-based Likert scale question, we can’t
During Articulate training sessions, we often encounter questions that make us think of the new possibilities within Storyline. For me, this happened recently when an attendee asked if it would be possible to create a timeline that could move back and forth (or up and down) using a slider. The more we talked, the more excited I became at the possibility of creating a timeline that would not only be a more robust course design, but also more memorable and engaging for the learner! Take a look at what I
Day 2 of the Articulate Storyline 2 training starts with quizzing…in fact, a lot of Day 2 focuses on quizzing. From regular and free-form questions to question banks, branched scenarios, and even screen recording and simulation quizzing, we cover it all! In almost every class, when I show a hotspot type question, I’m asked, “Can I make a hotspot question have more than one correct answer?” Well, a hotspot question in itself cannot. However, never fear…the beauty of Storyline is that we get to think OUTSIDE the box! Take a
