When we teach interactive elements in our hands-on Articulate Storyline 360 training, someone will inevitably ask: “How do we keep learners from interacting until the narration ends?” This can be crucial in compliance-based e-Learning, ensuring the learners receive all content and don’t skip ahead. Let’s look at ways we can temporarily lock interactions for this “as heard in training” question. As you’ll undoubtedly hear us say in training: “There’s always more than one way to accomplish it in Storyline 360.” Today, we’ll discuss three methods for temporarily locking interactions. Method
In a previous blog entry, we addressed this and many other things to consider as you create your course. But this question comes up again, and again, so I wanted to revisit it, and provide you with yet another reason why it can be important. I like order rather than chaos. I like straight lines and properly spaced objects, and yeah…it probably makes me a little bit boring. And during the three days in Storyline 360 training, I find out that I’m not always alone. One of those ways I
During Storyline training, we learn how to customize a course to ensure that learners view all the content on each slide. Depending on the situation and the type of content, there are a variety of strategies that can be used. One question that is often raised is, “How do I ensure my learners view all of the interactive content on a slide before moving on?” That’s a pretty popular question and David Anderson does a great job explaining how to do that here. However, sometimes the request is more specific.
In a recent custom virtual training, a student asked for help in creating scenario-based courses in Storyline. When the scenario arrived to a point where the learner received a quiz question, they wanted the learner to not only be able to review content they had already seen, but to also highlight important information. The main consideration here was that they did not want the information highlighted on the original slide, only when being reviewed. While there are several ways one might accomplish this, one of the easiest ways is to
This question was sent to me just this month after a training session. Let me set it up for you… In our advanced class, we teach the students how to build a custom menu and control the navigation of that menu using True/False Variables (aka, Boolean–for the nerds out there). You can view a simplified version of the course here. You can also download that .story file at this link. What is happening in this example is the “visited” states of the buttons are designed to look like an “in
