A few weeks ago, I shared a roundup of four fun e-learning examples created with Articulate Engage ’13; this week, I’m happy to bring you four more! With 20 types of interactions to choose from in Engage ’13, I’m sure you’ll spot something that complements your subject matter. Check out these four examples to get your creative juices flowing:
The bulletin board is a well-known office object. Why not use that as a background for some type of educational or office-based training? Customize the colors of your notes and use a handwritten font for authenticity. This example also uses audio narration for an extra kick, which is a breeze to record directly in Articulate Studio.
The conversation interaction is perfect for illustrating a scenario or series of questions and answers between two characters. Use this interaction to demonstrate for learners how they should, or should not, respond to inquiries and common questions. One idea: build out several variations of the same conversation, and have it play out differently depending on how the character answers. This is a fun way to let learners explore the different possible outcomes based on what was said in the conversation.
Does your e-learning course need a simple Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section that explains how to navigate the course and what steps to take when it’s completed? This interaction is perfect for just that. This is also a great way to list commonly asked customer questions or questions that new employees might have when they join an organization.
Like bulletin boards, folders are a well-known and familiar office object used to organize information and files in real life. So why not use them for the same in your e-learning? Chunk your content and present it in different folders. This helps to avoid overwhelming the learner with too much info all at once. Don’t forget to use fun videos and images, as well as hyperlinks, like this example does.
And there you have four more awesome Engage ’13 examples! Do you have any requests for content you’d like to see in an Engage interaction? If so, let me know in the comments below. And if you have any questions or feedback, give us a shout-out on Twitter!
