I’m Speaking at DevLearn 2017!


2017 will be the second year I’ve spoken at DevLearn. Last year was my first Bring Your Own Laptop session, which went well (and I learned a lot), and this year I’m going back to my roots with a session I’ve given many times, albeit it’s getting a bit of an overhaul this year.

This year, I’ll be talking all about Building Your E-Learning Portfolio. If you’ve taken the free Build Your E-Learning Portfolio mini-course over at Sprout E-Learning, you’ve had a taste of what I’ll be talking about, but this will be the latest and greatest! It’s an important topic that I think is getting a lot more recognition in recent years, but it’s still a topic that boggles the mind of many Instructional Designers and E-Learning Developers. I’ll try to boggle your minds less!

There are also a slew of some of my favourite e-learning industry heavy hitters presenting, so it’s sure to be a good (and informative) time.

In other news, I know I’ve been absent for the past few weeks, and there are several reasons for that:

  1. I put it my resignation at a local university and was working hard to prepare them for that transition.
  2. I traveled to Atlanta and attended ATD ICE 2017.
  3. I started a new full-time role at a local college.
  4. I’m putting the finishing touches on Articulate Storyline 2: Essentials over at Sprout E-Learning – stay tuned; it’ll be live very soon!

However, I’m back in the blogging game now!

Screencast: Creating Custom Feedback Layers (NOT With Feedback Master) in Articulate Storyline

Continuing on with our custom multiple choice question, I thought I’d show you how to create custom feedback layers. These custom feedback layers do not use the feedback master and may be viewed as an unconventional approach…unconventional but effective. I’ll show you the feedback master in another screencast – don’t worry!

Check out the screencast below (and I apologize for my rambling)!

Screencast: Real-Time Customization of Built-In Multiple Choice Question Slide in Articulate Storyline

In this screencast, I wanted to show just how quickly you can customize a built-in question slide in Articulate Storyline. For this demo, I’m showing you how to modify the built-in multiple choice question slide in Storyline, but I don’t go as deep as showing you how to customize feedback slides or option states – I’ll save that for another video or two.

Note: This is a real-time demo, so you’ll hear all of my ramblings and indecisiveness.
