What are some ways you would teach where to click on a web site

I was wondering if some of you could share with me  some  ideas or samples on ways in which you have created a course teaching where to click on a website, in order to be able to get to specific page or result.  I have created a few videos and added them to engage media tour, but would like to hear what others would create for the same course.  Thank you.

Hi Helena -

Sometimes screencasting is overkill if you simply want to highlight menus and features. Here's a quick example of what a static, screenshot approach could look like using Presenter '09:

This type of interaction is  a lot easier to build in Storyline, but you can achieve the overall effect in Presenter using hidden slides and hyperlinks.

I really like this demo - I do a lot of software training and need to remember this one - thanks for sharing it.

Hi Helena,

Another option might be putting the power in the hands of the learner by having THEM find the right spot to click, rather than showing them.

Maybe you could tell them how the page is organized, and/or give a hint by showing a "SUPER close up" view of the exact spot, then have them locate it on the page and click on it.

The more you put the responsibility on the learner, the more involved they are and the higher the retention of course.

Hope this helps,

Bob
