Building responsive Storyline content for Rise courses
One of the things I love about Rise is that it offers a fully responsive experience for learners across all devices. A big tick in the box for Articulate! However, as with all browser-based authoring tools, the ability to add custom interaction to a Rise-created course is limited. To get around this, you can build customised interactions using Storyline and drop them into a Rise course using the Storyline block. All good so far.
Where I get stuck is that the Storyline content is not responsive. So whilst the Rise course around the Storyline block responds beautifully to the device it's being viewed on, the Storyline content does not. This offers some challenges in the design phase. In addition, when the Storyline block is viewed on a mobile phone - it often appears greyed out with a 'play' symbol over it, as if the content is a video when in fact it's just an interactive piece of learning. The requirement for the learner to press the play button to view the content fragments the learning experience somewhat and is not as seemless as I would like.
Until recently, I have been 'living' with these 'quirks' BUT THEN...... I discovered this example of eLearning:
as referenced in this article.....
In lesson 5, there is a custom-built interaction called 'Scenario Knowledge Check' which works beautifully on a mobile phone. There is no 'play' button for the learner to press and the interaction responds perfectly to the size of the device it is being viewed on.
I've landed in Nirvana! To know that there is a way to create RESPONSIVE custom interactions that can slot into a Rise course and feel seemless to the learner has made my day! No, week. No, year.
The big question is HOW? As many visitors to this forum will testify, creators are always looking to push boundaries and expand their skill set and I am no different. I would dearly love to know how this was done.
If anyone can help, I (and my clients) would be very grateful.
