Newbie in need of guidance please

Hello

I have taken on a rather large project and would really appreciate the advice and guidance of more experienced Storyline Articulate creators.

This is the link to review what I have done so far: https://360.articulate.com/review/content/b094182b-1f78-425b-9af5-4c8861f4da80/review

In particular, I'm hoping to get help with the True & False Quiz in Activity 2. I downloaded it from this site but needed to change it to suit. The client requires 60 seconds instead of 10 seconds to complete each question and I can't find where to remove the arrows on hover on questions now that there are only 2 spots, instead of 3. This is the original: https://community.articulate.com/download/storyline-gamified-quiz-template-with-timer

I have been so stressed out by this project and not happy with the standard and being put under constant pressure from the client to get it finished.

I'm going away for a week, but would really appreciate any feedback for when I get back.

Praying to the articulate gods for help now. Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Jules :)

Hi Jules, welcome to Storyline 360. Please take this as constructive feedback.

General:

I would use the modern player and set the menu to closed by default, the menu I would set to collapsed there yes a lot of content which could be overwhelming.

Add in the player volume control as for accessibility it will be needed. 

Unless you plan on adding in resources, switch off the resources tab

Check your menu, the are cases of sentence case and all initial caps.

I don't get the tabs on the main page and the animations in there I would remove as they don't add anything. Think these should be on a separate slide.

For slides where the audio is the only content why not set to automatically advance?

I think you could use the clients colour scheme in the buttons, looks like default storyline color scheme.

The Jess is not happy section I found a bit confusing as it animated too fast.

I don't think the T/F game fits with the style of the rest of it, I much prefer the T/F game style. Although hover states are really odd in the game, and the Circle has changed to an oval. That is about as far as I got. 

I am not keen on the style but if the client is happy, I think the text alignment at the top looks unbalanced, and not sure you should give as much real estate at the bottom to the logo.

Good luck!

Hi Phil

Thanks for your feedback and apologies for my late reply. I've been on a short break.

I would use the modern player and set the menu to closed by default, the menu I would set to collapsed there yes a lot of content which could be overwhelming. I did try this with the client but they want the full old menu I'm afraid.

Add in the player volume control as for accessibility it will be needed. Great, thanks, I will work out how to do that now.

Unless you plan on adding in resources, switch off the resources tab. Done, thank you.

Check your menu, the area cases of sentence case and all initial caps. Sorry not sure what you mean by this.

I don't get the tabs on the main page and the animations in there I would remove as they don't add anything. Think these should be on a separate slide. I agree, it's what the client wants though. The client is as new as me in this.

For slides where the audio is the only content why not set to automatically advance? Will look into this.

I think you could use the clients colour scheme in the buttons, looks like default storyline color scheme. Ok :)

The Jess is not happy section I found a bit confusing as it animated too fast. Ok :)

I don't think the T/F game fits with the style of the rest of it, I much prefer the T/F game style. Although hover states are really odd in the game, and the Circle has changed to an oval. That is about as far as I got. I totally agree, I'm having huge issues with the True/False section. I want to start again but haven't been able to find anything suitable that I can download. I'm a little apprehensive about building from scratch as I messed it up the first time.

I am not keen on the style but if the client is happy, I think the text alignment at the top looks unbalanced, and not sure you should give as much real estate at the bottom to the logo. Yep I agree on this too, but it is to client requirements.

Thanks so much Phil, I appreciate your feedback.

Hi Julie,

If you haven't already sussed it out I have attached a version of the quiz with a 60-second timer. All of that stuff is on the slide master, so head there to alter it.

I didn't change the story size though, it's still in 16:9

 

Hope it helps and good luck with the project : )
