Converting information from Word Document to e-learning course using Storyline

Jan 05, 2021


I'd like to share with you a project that I’ve created,

It's was a sample of word document, and the client asked me to convert it to e-learning course using Storyline,

The word document was just including a little information about a topic called "contract Management"

I'd like to share with you me design & to get your respectable feedback.


Thanks In Advance

Hi, Sameh,

I think you've created a nice presentation of that content. I especially like the menu on the left side. 

I have a few minor suggestions:

  • In some instances, there could be more contrast between the text and the background. For example, under Contract Management, the activities are in black text on a darkish gray background. That makes the text harder to read, especially for those with visual difficulties. 
  • Under Contract Types, some of the text is underlined. That's an old standard from the days of typewriters, when there was no other way to add emphasis. However, underlining has become a standard for hyperlinks. Therefore, it should not be used except when the text is clickable. Instead, use bold, italics, size, and/or color to add emphasis. 
  • I can imagine some users being unsure what to do under Contract Types. My initial reaction would be to click the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 to access the associated information. However, I recognized the Storyline dial, so I knew I had to drag it. But others might not know to do that, so instructions would be helpful. Or perhaps redesign that interaction. 

Congrats on the nice work!

Sameh - Nice work! Here are some of my suggestions:

  • I noticed that most of the text is in a both-sides-justified format. It looks kind of boxy. I would recommend using left justified text instead. It's easier to read on a screen.
  • You may want to consider asking your SME for some context as to when each of types of contracts are used. You could create scenarios using this information. 
  • And I agree with Judy - instructions are key, especially for the dial.

Nice work!
