Image Zoom and Magnification Techniques in E-Learning #226

Zooming and Magnifying Techniques #226: Challenge | Recap

A common design challenge for course designers involves working with high resolution images in a smaller, mobile-friendly screen size. For quick-hit solutions, you can run with Storyline 360’s zoom region, markers, and zoom picture tools. All three tools will quickly give learners a close-up view of detailed images.

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share a solution to allow learners to zoom in or magnify parts of an image, graphic, document, or video.

New Entries Only!

We hosted the first image zoom challenge three years ago. It was one of our most active challenge weeks and continues to be one of the most asked questions in our workshops and webinars.

To keep things fresh and zoomy, we’re asking that you share only new examples this week. You’re more than welcome to re-work a previous example.
