Want to make your e-Learning quizzes more interactive? Let’s dial things up and slide into how to use sliders and dials in Storyline 360 quizzing! The DevLearn conference is a great opportunity for us to connect with e-Learning industry peers. It’s also a chance to take our hands-on Articulate 360 training to a new locale! We recently had the opportunity to convert one of the questions we receive during our Storyline 360 training into a DevLearn conference session. We had a blast showcasing how to use sliders and dials in
Why Didn’t That Work?
We get this question, or some form of it, asked perhaps more than any other question during the Storyline 360 portion of our hands-on Articulate 360 training: “Why didn’t that work?” It’s frustrating when something doesn’t work as you intended or hoped during e-Learning development. We’ve all been there and understand your pain! So, let’s tackle this “as heard in training question” today and figure out “Why didn’t that work?!” There are occasions when there is a technical glitch and the issue is beyond our control, but these are very
Can I Reset a Variable?
We explore all the variables of variables during our hands-on Storyline 360 training, and in doing so, we so often stumble upon e-Learning interactions that would benefit from a variable reset. Join us today as we answer this “as heard in training” question: “Can I Reset a Variable?” In Storyline 360 e-Learning development, there are many motivations to reset a variable, otherwise known as “initializing.” (And luckily, initializing a variable is easier than you might think—often requiring just one additional trigger.) Not only can initializing variables become necessary when developing
What If I Need the Stops in My Slider to Be Uneven?
In the final portion of our hands-on Advanced Storyline 360 training, we end the session with some fun, easy, and favorite features of mine: sliders and dials! During this segment, we task the students with creating a fairly simple interaction that we use often: showing a timeline of events. In that exercise, the slider has eight stops, and the stops are equal distance apart. When teaching this, however, we’re often asked, “What if I need my slider to stop at points that aren’t equal distance apart?” While there are varying
Can I Use a Slider to Page Through a Document?
When we teach sliders in our hands-on Storyline 360 training, we can see learners thinking of possible use cases, like “can I use a slider to page through a document?” Maybe you have a policy document that must be read, or a clinical reprint that needs to be reviewed. These are great use cases for using a slider to page through the existing documentation! Let’s explore this “as heard in training” question today. The Document First, we need to ensure the document is in an image format for use in
