Example: Medical Course Demo

Jan 30, 2017

I just wanted to share this demo I created. This is a compilation I created from several different activities and interactions that I developed for a client on various courses. They allowed me to reuse the interactions I created for them as long as I changed most of the content.  

With this demo I wanted to give it some visual depth so I played around by adding shadows to the menu items. On the main menu, I separated the menu items from the shadow and placed them on different motion paths. When the menu items, the shadow moves differently creating some depth.

I added sliders to create interactive demonstrations on how force causes different fractures.

In this interaction (below) I have around 6 sliders controlled by 1 slider and a single variable. 

Here I created custom animations to help explain the different cardiac conditions of the heart. (I love After Effects)

Good Job, Jerson! Your great work makes the content very interesting and easy to understand. I also really like the XRay slider interaction.  Would you please kindly explain more on how you used "6 sliders controlled by 1 slider and a single variable"?. Or, if you don't mind, is it possible to share the source file only shows the Xray slider page? Thank you very much in advance. :-)

Thanks Phoebe,

The sliders were easy. I created 6 different sliders for the various highlights and the skeleton. I also created another slider for the xray scanner. Then I made them all point to the same variable.  This way when the user moves the Xray Scanner slider, the other sliders move too.

Here is a quick example where I also adjusted the starting point and end point to give it more variety.

Jerson, this is excellent. I am looking to create something similar for my next group of trainees. I wanted to start with Spine anatomy and use some of the effects and sliders as you did. Was this created with Storyline? I'm quite new to Articulate and only have comfort with Rise right now. Can you give me a high-level walk through of how you developed this?

@Jenna,  I created the images in Adobe Illustrator and exported the different iamges as PNGs. Then I used the different images as different states for the same object. I used an arrow image as the thumbnail for the slider. When the user moves the slider past a certain threshold, the image will change to a different state. In this case it changed to the "fractured" state.
