Menu Outline.. Need your help
Feb 01, 2013
I need your help with some ideas as to best way to display the menu outline in Storyline
I'm creating a large simulation course for a client about using their IT system. Each screen has a lot of fields where explanation is given to each field. Some fields it is a mouse click and others are either text entry or simply an explanation
The whole course is a demo mode
I created the course fine however I'm struggling with the menu appearance. As you all know you can only have one mouse click/movement in the slide. Unfortunately I have hundreds of menu items, some are literally just 5 to 10 seconds.
Hiding them from the menu will not do the learners good as going to the main screen menu item and have to click next, next to reach that invisible transaction is very confusing.
The course uses the seekbar but it is only for the slide, there is no way currently to group multiple slides in one seekbar
What is a better way to display such a menu? Any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated as the client will not be impressed with such a large menu. I even ran out of namings for each menu item!
The client is used to captivate in articulate Presenter where the SWF file with multiple actions is added as one item in the course menu. This was great but the clients wants iPad and is impressed with Storyline other capabilities
Thanks a lot
