Eureka!!! Storyline to native mobile App and Facebook App
Dec 09, 2013
The wonder of Articulate Storyline is simplicity. Myself being a teacher who knows no programming learnt storyline and successfully adopted it in my teaching. Being its learning cycle is simple, all of us look for what is next.
I tried to build a mobile application only using Storyline and without using any other third party paid software. There were two reasons for this: one is students learn better when they have lessons in their smartphones. Second packaging as a html5 and opening is mobile browser is a tedious process for a novice student.
So spent some sleepless nights and finally built a native mobile app. Now I have only Android app developed as I dont have developer licence for iPhone.
The following are the futures (+/-):
+most of the storyline functions are working
+video, navigation, random quiz all behaviours are as expected
+fill screen manages different mobile screen sizes successfully and adopts as expected. Including
orientation changes are handled well.
-pan and zoom is difficult
-drag n drop has some issue
-the default aspect ratio of storysize leaves more empty space on the sides
-the menu font size is so small as we have limitations in changing font size
Using the same approach I also built a Facebook App. This app is an embedded facebook application which allows users to learn lesson and take quiz. This works as expected. I am on the process of posting users score on the app page.
The Android App can be downloaded here.
The Facebook App page is here: https://apps.facebook.com/hiteach/
