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.
The user’s understanding of the subject matter is the chief objective when developing e-Learning. Still, once we are positive that we have built something in which communication of the material is effective, there’s still that lingering element that every designer always covets: a little magic, otherwise known as the “Wow Factor.” One way that we like to play magicians at Yukon Learning is by crafting our own custom slide transitions, outside of what Storyline 360 already offers. For example, the learner selects an object, and the items on screen linger
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
There’s one moment in particular that brings me extra delight as an instructor during our Storyline workshops. It’s that look of awe from participants when we draw attention to a trigger that works because of the sequential order of the triggers themselves. As you may know, triggers execute all of the action in our Storyline builds. Aside from a few timeline-based events, we see most of our slide actions listed in the Triggers Panel. However, the sequential order of triggers within the panel can also be significant. You may or
