Does highly technical material work with this approach?

Forgive me for asking, but the examples I've seen are of "light" materials like Employee Wellness or a illustrated character smiling when the learner clicks the right response. I have a 5 day presentation, approximately 550 slides (material, lab exercises, practice questions, reference material, test) that we currently only provide in person, but want to have available both on-line and in-person. The material is for our software product and includes many descriptions of click paths, inputs/outputs, etc... in short it's dense, and the learners are expecting it to be dense. Does anyone have examples of what can be achieved with this type of training? Thanks!

Hi Eric,

I work in an IT department and create eLearning courses for users to learn how to use the applications we deploy. In the past, I have used the recording feature to create slides that will demonstrate how to use the application ("View It") or allow them to try it by clicking and selecting the appropriate options on the screen ("Try It"). There are also many other ways to test their knowledge using the quizzing features baked into the application.

Unfortunately, I do not have examples available because the information I work with is proprietary and confidential. I would only suggest playing around with the "Try It" and "View" modes in Storyline. With some tweaking, there are a lot of things you can do with this software.

I'll stay tuned into this thread because I'm curious if others have some examples to look at. I am currently looking to freshen up the approach we have been using the the last few years.

Good luck!
