For people who are not Photoshop experts and who do not have the time to develop those skills, PowerPoint can be a useable alternative. Using a tool you already have saves money especially if you can use it in many ways.
I like the ideas I get from LinkedIn and eLearning Heroes. In another blog, I mentioned the people I follow and just recently I had an idea from Alexander Salas on using variables and motion paths to create an incremental score in the results slide.
I knew how to put variables in the Master slide for questions to show a score and I often use that to help the learner see how many questions they have completed.
I did not know how to combine motion paths with a variable to have it count the score at the end of the quiz, the results slide.
This is the link Alexander Salas posted of a video he made that clearly describes the process. Great video and he even includes an example file that works in Articulate Storyline 2, 3, or 360. Cool!
I realized this could be the solution I was looking for to complete my game scenarios for the Sententia Games Level 3 certification. It took a bit of time but I figured out how to apply Alexander's concept to my game and then how to reset the game if the person fails.
This example is just a prototype but demonstrates the use of variables to select an avatar and use motion paths for the avatar in the game. It also applies Alexander's use of variables and motion paths to track a score and display it on the results slide. The game also includes other elearning concepts and game mechanics.
As I have been learning, to be gamified, the game needs to have business objectives, a story, and mechanics to help the player learn something as well as have fun.
I have read many articles in eLearning Heroes and other places about putting Closed Captions in Storyline. I noted that when Storyline 3 came out, it had support for Closed Captioning where Storyline 2 does not. While there are many workarounds in Storyline 2, version 3 I feel makes the process easier.
I have been experimenting with this process and where video caption is concerned, it is pretty easy. The instructions have you use the process in You Tube that can automatically sync voice in the video as closed captions.
On Wednesday, May 24 6:00 - 8:00 PM the Greater Philly Articulate Storyline User Group is meeting and I am going to present several ideas on Storyline 3 including how to do closed captioning. Other presenters will also give tips on games and other Storyline functions.
For those who cannot attend, I am posting here the link I will give attendees on using Storyline 3 for closed captioning. I hope you find it use full.
Thursday, May 18 I presented at the 2017 Teaching and Learning with Technology Symposium at the New Castle, DE campus. My topic gave examples of why stories help people learn and how gamification and scenarios are better when driven by a story. Most of the presentation involved the participants viewing examples of games to see if they were in fact a game or was it gamification. Our main criteria was did the example have business objectives and did the developer use a story. We also looked at various scenario examples to see which ones used a story creating more engagement for the learner.
The participants also received a link to a copy of the PowerPoint, links to examples, and links to various recourses on story telling, gamification, and scenarios. This is the Resource from the Symposium.
There are several people I follow in the learning and development world. I hope listing their blogs or websites here will help you as well.
Tom Kuhlmann The Rapid eLearning Blog A must for Articulate users but of benefit to anyone who wants to know more about eLearning and design. Did I mention Tom is a PowerPoint guru?
Cathy Moore's Blog has a lot of great ideas. She may be best known for Action Mapping and Scenario Design.
Christopher Pappas eLearning Industry covers many concepts in eLearning so expect to find a lot when you are there.
Jane Bozarth's bozarthzone has many ideas on creating and outsourcing inexpensive e-learning solutions. Jane is a speaker at many eLearning seminars and workshops.
Monica Cornetti Sententia Gamification to learn gamification including certification.
Karl Kapp website and blog on ideas for e-learning, transferring knowledge, gamification and more.
Ray Jimenez Vignettes Learning offers many ideas on Micro Learning and Story Telling to enhance learning. I have attended many seminars in person and online with Ray and it is always worthwhile.
Kevin Thorn NuggetHead Studioz I attended Kevin's seminar on Advance Articulate Storyline and learn to create prototypes with Storyline along with a great deal more.
Alexander Salas Style Learn has a great deal of experience in L&D and I like his concepts for eLearning.
Zsolt Olah Engage the WORL&D has a lot of ideas on design and gamification.
The E-Learning Heroes Community is an indispensable resource for Articulate users and anyone else who wants to see amazing examples and How Tos of eLearning.
