Creative Navigational Tour Ideas


I am new to eLearning and I am currently working on creating a nagivational course tour for one of the projects I am working on.  The purpose is to give learners who are new to our course a brief overview of the different navigational functions available to them on the Articulate Player (i.e. previous, next, play/pause, menu, etc.)

My client wants met to make this "tour" interactive with the learner, i.e. requiring them to click on items before they progress to the next navigational function.  Since (to my knowledge) I can't track or progress the slide forward based on the learner actually clicking the menu, glossary, volume (etc.), I was wondering if anyone has or has seen any interesting navigational tour options.

Right now, the only thing I can think of is having one of the photographic characters point in the direction of the navigational function being explained and have a text bubble pop-up near the button. The learner would then have to click the text bubble to proceed to the next navigational feature.

Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciate! Thank you!

If your client wants to have an interactive tour you may create a dummy articulate player within the articulate storyline course.

Make a snapshot of one (or more) of your course and use hotspots for navigation and mouseover effects for explanation.

Another possible way:

Create a short video with articulate storyline by recording your screen while you navigate through an example course. Make some explanations in textboxes and the lerner can click through your tour.
