E-Learning Challenge 1: Convert Bullet Points to Interactive Content
I’ll have to have a chat with Tom, David, and Nicole, because there was not enough coffee in my morning to unleash creativity…but that’s for another time. Tom provided us with some content, and we were tasked with creating an interaction from that content.
Our group spent a lot of time talking about all of the cool things we could do:
- Using sliders to create a conveyor belt of gifts/tickets
- Once a gift is selected, using a slider as a decision making tool
- Using tabbed interactions
Then we settled on some buttons to make a decision making scenario with images for each gift, three options (Accept/Politely Decline/Read Policy). Dylan drove the development, and made everyone laugh with his firing feedback.
E-Learning Challenge 2: Create Character Driven Interactions
For this challenge, we were tasked with creating character-driven interactions, specifically related to the content provided by Tom. In this situation, a supervisor is giving an employee feedback on their job performance.
Samples included text-messaging discussions using motion path animations, text-messaging discussions with data entry fields, and quiz question conversation interactions.
With five minutes to spare, I settled on the idea I had for my interaction, which would be a flip book animation style interaction. Because it took me so long to decide on what I wanted to do, it will be a forth-coming challenge I feature here on the blog, so stay tuned! Until then, you can take a look at the intro slide, below:
E-Learning Challenge 3: Establish the Right Look and Feel for Your Course Part 1
I’ve participated in this challenge several times now, but it’s always a good one to provide developers with ideas for when they get to development.
David is having us create a mind map for a course associated with Canada Day, which has the goal of being used in E-Learning Challenge 4.
E-Learning Challenge 4: Establish the Right Look and Feel for Your Course Part 2
David prompted us to commit some of our paper ideas to more physical ideations. He then discussed the importance of this mind map in helping your through your development process.
He had a shockingly (Come on, David! You don’t know The Tragically Hip?!) low level understanding of Canada, but we’ll forgive him (because we’re Canadian), but he managed to relate his point to our points of Canadian reference.
E-learning Challenge 5: Incorporate the Company’s Brand into Your E-Learning
For this e-learning challenge, Tom prompted us to use a company’s brand in our e-learning; originally, he asked us to develop using Good Belly’s branding, but then halfway through, he wanted us to change to Disney’s branding standards to create e-learning for using company vehicles for business.
Once everyone was finished, Tom provided some tips and tricks related to colour customization (e.g. using the Design tab and themes in Storyline, using theme fonts, and customizing the Player colours).
