Winter Trivia Project Demo

Winter Trivia 2012 Screen Shot

I volunteered to gather some winter trivia questions for my son's 4th grade classroom end of term celebration, and I thought it would be a great opportunity to use Storyline. 

I wanted the kids to have "self-directed, free choice" in how they proceeded through the 3 topics and any/all of the questions within a topic.  I didn't add a results/score slide because I wasn't sure how much time they would have to spend on the trivia questions, but that's certainly something I may add.

I've only been using Storyline for about 2 months, so I'm sure there's loads I could do differently/better/more efficiently, but thought I would share.  I welcome any and all suggestions and feedback!

Most importantly, a HUGE thank you goes out to David Anderson who helped me work out the kinks with the button and slide states that were giving me such fits.  David - You Rock!

@David - I hate to admit it, but by revealing my crude methods, maybe someone can step in and suggest a better alternative. 

I added the snow "manually"  - I created one piece of snow, added the shadow and animation, then I pasted 160 copies and spread them out across the slide.  After that I just messed around with the timing to make them feel random when falling.

I tried placing the objects across the screen and then grouping them, but then they all fell at the same time and same rate, so it's unsophisticated and a little time consuming, but I got the result I liked.

Any suggestions for next time?
