Sometimes, however, we’re asked to display a large amount of text on screen, such as legal material or a Terms of Service policy. In this blog post, we’ll walk through a specific Storyline 360 build that’s perfect for this use case. The Scrolling Panel is a Storyline 360 feature we really can’t get enough of. It helps us display endless content without ever leaving the page (since space on a single slide is in
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
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.
