Have you done / And is it worth it - Allen Interactions Design 102
Mar 12, 2022
I've been using Storyline forever, but NOT for a while. I'm stuck trying to widdle down 7 (seven!!) modules of HISTORY. I'm in Storyline with animations, and click and reveals (that I know ISN'T -meaningful- ), because it's a low impact, no performance type interactions that need to be performed.
I'm seeking inspiration, and considering taking AllenInteractions.com's DESIGN 102, but I'm leary about spending all that money. The description states: "focusing specifically on using imagery and hot-spot and hot-object interactivity to create compelling context, using variables to track actions and delay judgment, and non-linear sequencing" - all of which I know how to do, and might not be helpful in an info-only learning.
And, to be honest (poss. TMI), I'm also a little down on myself because I WANT to be making learning EXPERIENCES, not just one event (eg. 1 asynchronous elearning course). I'm trying to get across in job interviews that I'm all about experiences, but then here I am, simultaneously making a blah History course. So like, my anxiety-filled Fraud Complex is alive and well.
Those of you who just want to say "well suck it up." Doesn't really help. I've tried it already myself. How about... Can anyone share a design document for an actual learning experience they have designed/are designing?
Just like, majorly stuck. Ala writer's block, and feeling inadequate (or at the very least like, a HACK)... even though I've been doing this for over 8 years since getting a MEd in Instructional Systems Design.
You've guys have been so awesome over the years. I'm glad there's somewhere I can turn to for maybe a little support.
Thank you so much for "listening".
