I've enjoyed (and gotten a lot of use out of) the many graphics and templates shared by the Articulate community. I've attached a few clock animations I created and have used in various e-learning courses. It's created in PowerPoint, so you can change the look and animation. I hope you find these useful!

Angie these are great! I actually gasped when I ran the animations! I'm working on a compliance course at the moment so will use one of these treasures in the slide about completing in a timely manner.....  (is it overkill to use all of them on one slide?? )

 

Many thanks

Sarah.

I think a few people were having trouble downloading the pptx. Here it is saved as PPT, too, just in case!

Thank you!  I was just about to mock up some clocks myself for a program I'm doing and here you are, saving me some valuable time!

Simple question, but can the clock be resized and added as an object to another template?

Brilliant.  And to adapt:

  1. Delete the hour hand, 
  2. Change the rotation to anticlockwise (counterclockwise) and
  3. In Advanced Timeline, extend the duration to one minute 
and you have a one minute countdown!

Hi Susan, what template are you thinking of adding them to? They're illustrations built in powerpoint, so they are editable and you could resize them (although it may require some tweaking).

Great idea, Bryan! Love the idea of a one minute countdown. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Angie

Thanks. I'm thinking of adding it as an animated image that goes alongside some text so I'll make it smaller. I've started to play around with it, and managed to get it smaller, thanks!

Making Angie's clocks go tictoc. First attempt.

 

Had to go back to Powerpoint (guess Presenter would have sufficed) to do this one.

 

Hope you like it.

Angie,  Love the clocks!  Has anyone tried to import them into Storyline?  I changed the time so it counts 10 minutes but when it gets to Storyline, it still does the full rotation.  Thanks!

Hi Heather. At present that is the one major limitation of Storyline (the way it handles animation that we kinda used to in Powerpoint).

 

A work around is to do the animation as you require in Powerpoint - then save file as a wmv (windows media video) file. Then insert this into Articulate as a video. See attached.

Thanks, all. Alphonso, great idea converting the animation to a wmv file. That method will be handy for other animations too.
