Tonight I was feeling a little nostalgic for the E-Learning Heroes Challenges. For that reason, and the fact that David Anderson is probably going to nag me to participate more when we see each other this week (I KID!), I whipped something up in my evening wind down.
This challenge was to create one of the most common of e-learning interactions: tabbed navigation. Every e-learning developer has created a tabbed interaction, so it’s always nice to have a repository of suggestions to consult when you feel as though you need to freshen up your development approach. This is what I love about the E-Learning Heroes Challenge recaps – sometimes my brain is too tired to think!
For this tabbed interaction, I first went to Pinterest, where I stumbled upon this horizontal tab menu, and I loved the look/feel. Next, I opened Storyline to try and replicate the effect. It’s not perfect, but it’s close enough for me. I fiddled with the design size, consulted coolors.co for a colour palette, and then wrote a bunch of things about myself.
Like I said, it’s not perfect, but it’s close. And at past-bedtime-o’clock, I’m happy with it.
