A 'Day in the Life' Roadmap Course in Storyline

I have a client who wants a custom eLearning course in Storyline - essentially he wants to have a map with hotspots and a car that goes to each step in their process. At each step there would be scenarios, questions, games, branching scenarios, etc. so the learner better understands that portion of their process. If the learner achieves a certain status then they see the map again and their car moves to the next hot spot/section on the map for more questions, scenarios, etc. Think of points being added/removed for correct/incorrect or 'not the best' choices. He would also like a leaderboard where other people (not in the same location) can see who is ahead/behind, etc. I'm thinking this is a full custom build within the tool but wondered if anyone has done anything like this, used a third party tool that helped, etc.?

Communicating to the outside world is probably going to take some complex scripting and/or WebObject at the very least. Extensive custom build. And if the course includes mobile, scripting support is unavailable. Two-way communications will likely require some clever javascript coding in the published html files too.

Sounds like a great project, if a bit challenging in SL; native HTML might be a better fit. Best of luck.

Hi Heather,

I don't know that I've run into a set up like that, but you may also want to search the Building Better Courses side of the forums as there tend to be more design and how to focused. You could also search through the available Templates here to see if there is anything else that may work for you.

Hi K,

I'm not sure if Heather is still subscribed here, as the post is a bit older - but you could always use the "contact me" button on a ELH users' profile to reach out to them directly! I'd also suggest reaching out in the Building Better Courses side of ELH and see if there is anyone who can help! That side tends to focus more on design and how to. 

Best of luck with your project!
