E-learning Heroes Challenge #63

As I explained in my last post, I am currently reviewing all the existing ELH Challenges in order to participate in some of them, to develop my Storyline skills. At the beginning of the week, I wanted to participate to ELH Challenge #55, “How to survive a zombie apocalypse”. As a big fan of the comic and TV show ‘The Walking Dead’, I really wanted to participate. So, I started a funny game. But I did not finish it, because I was not satisfied of what I was doing. The problem was not the game itself, but the graphic part of the game. I don’t why, but I did something not very beautiful. Actually, I find it awful. So, I decided to suspend my work on this challenge, in order to improve my sense of design…

That is why I finally decided to work on the last ELH Challenge about the new color of the year ‘Marsala’. I created 3 very simple activities based on this color and the pictures we can find on this website.

I really enjoyed working on this challenge, because I really focused on the look of my slides. I think (I hope) I have created something very simple but nice. I hope you will enjoy those 3 slides. Don’t hesitate to give me your feedback!

E-learning Heroes Challenge #31

Well, well, well!

My manager told me: ‘Before the end of the year, please play with Storyline 2. I want you to improve your skills, then you will be able to design better courses, and to do it faster!’.

OK, no problem! That’s why I am currently reviewing the different existing E-learning Heroes Challenges proposed by Articulate, and today I chose to participate to ELH Challenge #31: create a resume template with Storyline, with a presentation of our work.

I have seen a lot of interesting resumes done with Storyline, and I invite you to view it: https://community.articulate.com/articles/creative-resume-templates-elearning-portfolios

So, here is mine! I didn’t respect very well the ‘e-learning portfolio’ part of the challenge. I only added links to my experiments and ELH previous participation, I know I could have include a preview directly. But I preferred to do this way. Anyway, you can access my work via this online resume created with Storyline!

I used many features to design this online resume:
– variables
– motion path
– entering animations
– states
And more!

I really enjoyed this exercise, and it was a great experience to understand how Storyline can help us design e-learning modules but not only. We can imagine much more with this tool, and I guess that’s why Articulate proposed this challenge: to show us that their tool can be used for many activities and not only e-learning design.

You can access my online resume here; enjoy!

E-learning Heroes Challenge #50

I published my flat design slides made with Storyline 2 on Twitter, and David Anderson from Articulate suggested me to publish it on the ELH Challenge #50. So, I create a new post on my blog with all the existing slides of my module (which is not finished yet).

Thus, here are the several slides of my module. I created all the elements with Storyline 2 forms or textures: no drawing or picture.

1) Welcome slide – made with ArtRage and Storyline 2 – not very interesting for our flat design topic, but I think it was interesting to have a very simple and nice welcome slide in a ‘flat design’ module.


The welcome slide in ArtRage, before being included in Storyline.


The welcome slide in preview mode in Storyline.

As you can notice it, I tried to custom the player colors to match with the welcome slide colors.

2) ‘Meet Tim’ slide. Not the best one! It was hard to make a character with this view – to make him look like a human, with expression. I could probably improve it.


3) ‘Recruitment before the Internet’: this is an interesting slide, but it took me a lot of time to design it. I could probably have done it in a easier way. It was a hard work to add all the small elements. But the result is nice!


4) ‘Recruitment today’ slide: this one was easier, because it is very similar to the previous one. I just had to remove some elements and replace them with new ones easier to design. We can view a printer, a screen monitor, a simple keyboard. I confess the smartphone is a picture from Articulate galleries! I did it first myself, but I found this picture and I loved it, so I used it directly in the slide. But it would not have been hard to do it: 3 forms only.


5) Chapter title slide: this is a very basic background I design in 2 minutes in ArtRage. The text has been added in Storyline 2 of course, to add some ‘fade in’ effects.


6) ‘Definition of a job board’ slide: for this slide, I changed the view of the office. Now this is a front view. It was interesting to design it too.
