Text Heavy to Engaging!

I have been reading as much as I can about transforming text heavy slides into engaging and interactive slides. This article was helpful and included great tips, but I would love to see some basic examples of how you have put these ideas into play.

Would you reply to this thread and show off your work? I’m looking for primarily simply (not advanced) ideas that either:

·       condense text using layers (hidden in tabs, numbers etc.) or

·       condense text using a pull method where users have to pull the information to reference it before answering a scenario question.

Thanks!

I've been doing a lot of work lately with Adobe Character Animator.  Really very intuitive if you are borderline familiar with photoshop.  The example I am attaching took me all of 30 seconds to make.  I use the program to make animated avatars that lip sync to my voice.  A real time saver and far better than just using some text.  You can author the resulting videos any way you like using a variety of programs (In my example I just added some text with Camtasia).

I know that I haven't mentioned anything about Storyline.  I find Storyline to be best when augmented with assets from other programs.  You can really extend functionality that way.
