Using Web Objects for Performance Support in E-Learning #220

Using Web Objects in E-Learning #220: Challenge | Recap

Storyline’s Web Objects are similar to lightbox slides in that they give course designers a solution for loading on-demand content and resources when they need it. What makes web objects unique is how they allow learners to access external content such as web pages and intranet sites directly inside the course.

Ideas for using web objects include:

  • Pulling in compliance documents from intranet sites
  • Loading synchronous discussion forums and chat rooms for performance support
  • Playing educational podcasts and explainer videos

Challenge of the Week

This week, your challenge is to share an example that demonstrates how web objects can be used in e-learning.

If you’re not using Storyline or Studio, feel free to show something comparable in whatever tool you’re using.


Here are a few resources to help you get started. If you get stuck or need some help, please post in the forums and we’ll be glad to help you out.
