Photoshop Software Simulation
Here is an example software demonstration created in Storyline 2, which lets the user learn the steps to creating a black and white image in Photoshop before being given the chance to try it out for themselves. I previously shared it for the Elearning Noir challenge.
Both the Show Me and Try Me sections were created by using Storyline's record screen function.
A hints system uses layers to give the user a nudge in the right direction if they get stuck.
You can read a few more scattered thought about software simulations and hints systems over on my blog.
