Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to share an interactive listicle of 10 things course designers should know about e-learning or instructional design.
What is a listicle?
A listicle is an article that's written in a list format. The list items are usually expanded into one or more paragraphs making it more like an article.
What format should I use for my list?
Your entry can be a static list, blog post, explainer videos, an interactive graphic, infographic, or anything else you'd like to create.
We hosted a similar challenge four years ago, and the examples were terrific. Here are a few highlights to help you get started.
Interactive Slider Listicles
I like the way Tania Vercoelen converted her top 10 list into a slider interaction. Sliders are a great way to chunk content and focus learners' attention on a single idea or concept.
Here’s another idea for presenting your top 10 list. Using simple click-and-reveal interactions, Anastasia Laur takes learners on a linear journey by stepping through each tip or idea.
Rise 360 for Listicles
I can’t think of a better way to present a list than with Rise 360. Just about every block type would work well for presenting a series of lists. Check out the way Rachael Vergara approached her e-learning tips in this example.
Are you pressed for time this week? Share your top 10 list in the comments, and I’ll recap them as a screenshot. Here’s how Tricia Ransom shared her tips in the original challenge.
