This video screen cast demonstrates how to create a shape, change the colour, add animation using PowerPoint. This is just an example therefore the Help button does not provide any real Help at the moment. The recording was made using Articulate Storyline 2.
This is the same screen cast as above, but this time, I chose to convert the recording into slides with step by step instructions. Check it out the difference below.
Another cool way to use a slider by using it as a form of measurement. I enjoyed creating this activity and my daughter enjoyed testing it.
The slider was a new feature to me, and it was easy to change the slider features, there were just a few things to bare in mind when setting up the slider using the Slider properties. In general they seem relatively simple to use. Can't wait to test this out on more challenges via the Articulate Community.
Watch the moon phases change! This is a great way to use the slider. It really does make an impact. Try it and see!
This multiple choice quiz was built in Storyline 2, see quiz below.
Storyline 2 also offers drag and drop quizzes using hot spots, see quiz below.
Another quiz type from Storyline 2, allows the learner to click multiple correct answers. Try it below.
I've never used variables before so they were difficult to get my head around, I still need to practice this feature further. Saying that, I included variables in #62 - How to survive the holidays, which was challenging but I got there in the end. I'm sure there will be more opportunities for me to use variable further down the track of the Articulate Community Challenges.
Tutorial No 8 was possibly the hardest to get my head around as it was using the Triggers in Storyline 2. I've used triggers in PowerPoint before but not to this extent. ie opening and closing the fridge, plus hiding the ice cream once dropped inside the fridge. You could say it was a learning curve. It looks so simple but there are a few triggers to manage and a second layer where the fridge is open. Great idea though, and it looks appropriate.
The previous blog and activity inspired me to participate in the e-learning challenge #62 - How to survive the Holidays. This challenge was set by David Anderson the Community Manager at Articulate. I became a member of the Articulate Community a few months ago, but hadn't published anything until now. I hope you enjoy the challenge of collecting four Christmas items before the shops close. I'd love to know how you got on with this activity.
The purpose of this activity was to create two markers and modify the settings accordingly. One option was to hover over the marker and the title appears or the whole item, or you could wait for the person to click before opening the full item. The markers can hold text, videos or images. So, with one marker I added a video and the other text. I really liked this activity. Take a look at it, and let me know what you think. Please note there is no sound for the video.
These state changes, took me a little while to get my head around what was happening. It was mostly likely due to the intensity that I was ploughing through all the activities. So the purpose of this activity was to set up two different states one appeared when you hovered the mouse over the tab, called the Hover state, The other state appeared after you clicked on the tab, which was called the Visited state. Check them out and let me know how you got on!
