At the end of our Articulate Storyline Advanced Day of training, we teach a feature called Sliders. It’s such a great feature to end the day with because sliders are so slick and easy to use, and “out of the box” look absolutely beautiful! However, people usually want more, right? Quite often, we’re asked, “Can I change the thumb on the slider?” or better yet, “Can I change the thumb on the slider when it moves along the track?” In this blog entry, we’ll describe how to adjust the visuals on
The questions we address here on The Articulate Trainer originate with questions that our students ask during our hands-on Articulate training. Some are unique, while others are more commonplace. When discussing the Player, one question we are frequently asked is whether or not it’s possible to leverage the simplicity of an e-Reader glossary feature. As usual, there are many ways to make something like this happen. Let’s take a look at one possible solution. Building Your Slides The first step is to build your slide just as you normally would.
When wrapping up our hands-on Articulate training, attendees are chock-full of new information and are ready to get started. While that’s exciting, there are sometimes concerns about returning to work and actually developing e-Learning without the aid of a trainer. So, let’s visit the common “as heard in training” question: “What resources do I have available now that the training is over?” As with anything new, we all appreciate support and guidance as we get started. Luckily for new (and even experienced) developers, the Articulate tools are incredibly supported. There
Teaching assessments during our hands-on Articulate training is one of my favorite portions because I often learn just as much from our students as they learn from me. It never fails that we have great discussions about methods people use for creating quiz questions, and sharing those methods only helps us grow as e-Learning developers. Recently, a student who also happened to be a firefighter asked, “I know we can time a quiz as a whole, but is there any way I can time quiz questions individually?” He went on
We love getting these kinds of questions in our hands-on Articulate training. Why? They address real issues that most e-Learning developers deal with every day. If it were up to us, all e-Learning courses would look incredible with great graphics, with fewer words on screen, and everything would be highly interactive…maybe even fun. We all want to build that kind of course! The truth is, we have to work with real-life content that can make finding the balance between what is “incredible” and what meets the needs of your stakeholders
