E-learning Heroes Challenge #146

This week’s challenge asked course designer to show how to use an interactive timeline in e-learning. Creating an interactive timeline is now super easy in Storyline 2, because of the slider feature. Of course, this is not the only way to design an interactive timeline in Storyline 2. Actually, there are a lot of way to design a timeline with that software.

I chose to do something simple, using the slider features, layers and markers. In this interactive timeline, you can view a non-exhaustive list of seasonal vegetables in Northern California per month. Just move the carrot icon at the top of the slide to navigate in the timeline, and hover the green markers to learn more about each vegetable.

E-learning Heroes Challenge #145

It’s been a long time since I participated to an E-learning Heroes Challenge! This week’s challenge asked course designers to share home safety courses and interactions. I really liked this one, so I did a short scene where you have to choose which house is the easiest to burglar. You can hover the grey buttons to get some information about the houses.

It is a very simple interaction, but I enjoyed designing the houses with shapes in Storyline! I hope you will appreciate this scene.

E-learning Heroes Challenge #86


It’s been a long time since I participated to a ELH Challenge proposed by Articulate! But this time, I had more time and was very interested in the challenge: create an interactive map to show where we live. I arrived in my neighborhood only 8 months ago, and I use Google Map a lot to discover the area, and to drive with the GPS feature of the app. So, I decided to create an interactive map looking like Google Map, in ‘Earth’ mode.

To create this interactive map, I had to create a looooooot of layers, Layers are life. Really. Your can play with then so much, with the correct triggers and settings. I also used sliders, one of the new features of Storyline 2. I had to be careful with all the variables used by the triggers, to ensure the proper picture is shown at any time.

It was very challenging, because I faced a few issues and had to find a solution to ensure my map would work properly, as expected, any time, after revisiting a layer, etc.

I hope you will enjoy this interactive map! You will discover 10 places in my neighborhood, in the beautiful city of Santa Clara in California.
