E-Learning for the Food and Beverage Industry #116

Food & Beverage E-Learning Examples #116: Challenge | Recap

This week’s challenge is focused on the food and beverage industry.

The industry challenges are designed to help you build your portfolio around specific markets and industries.

The more diverse your portfolio becomes, the more appealing you’ll be to a wider network of potential clients. Building industry-specific examples also helps you practice your course-building skills because you're creating something new or different.

Here’s a list of industry-specific topics we’ve already covered:

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to design an e-learning game, quiz, or interaction for the food and beverage industry.

Because this is such a broad industry, we’ll focus on specific areas in future challenges. For this week, choose anything that's generally related to the food and beverage industry.

Here are a few food and beverage examples to give you an idea of what’s already been shared in the community:

Thanks, David! I was about a quarter of the way through a course I bought on Udemy. Then I figured I'd try a challenge even though I really felt I wasn't "ready." I knew what I wanted it to look like, but hadn't learned anything yet about zooming, layers, triggers, etc. But I tried anyway, and every time I ran into something I didn't know but knew Storyline could handle, I looked it up in your online help and read some past discussion threads right here, both of which were extremely helpful.

Hey folks! I just wanted to let you know I updated the recap to include everyone's entries. If I missed an entry, please send me a note so I can update it.

Just something to keep in mind when giving feedback. For those of you who want feedback on your projects, please tell us what type of feedback you want. It helps us focus our constructive feedback on the area of your project that you know needs help. Finally, thank you all so much f... Expand
