Top 10 Things You Need Know About E-Learning

10 Things About E-Learning #187: ChallengeRecap

Challenge of the Week

This week your challenge is to share a top 10 list of things you want people should know about e-learning.

Your list can be for any audience. For example, you can target your list to a general audience, those new to our industry, or even to experienced e-learning designers.

Your entry can be a static list, blog post, explainer videos, an interactive graphic or infographic, or anything else you'd like to do.

Last Week’s Challenge:

Before you list what people should know about e-learning, check out the Ultra Violet examples your fellow community members shared in last week’s Pantone’s color of the year challenge:

I feel like I can relate to this, as I am a new person. 1. Put yourself in the learner's shoes.

Testing your slides, making adjustments, formatting, etc. Don't become frustrated when you have to review a slide for the 10th time to make sure all of the timing and effects are working properly. 2. Be creative but don't re-create the wheel. While it's nice to create from scratch, we don't always have the time (or know-how) to create new layouts or interactions.

Top Ten Things You Need To Know About E-learning #187 Hi guys! This is my first entry to one of these challenges and I think I’m going to be a bit more practical with this one in the sense that I’ll keep it to a top ten list of things to know in Storyline 360 specifically. Hopefully this helps some of you out who aren’t super familiar with the software. 1) Anything is possible but know your limitations You can do almost anything in Storyline 360, which means you can basically say yes to anything a client asks for, as long as they don’t ask for native iOS app functionality (something I come across a lot). However, there are limitations to what Storyline 360 can do, for example random object placement which I’ve only seen used where Javascript does all the work. What I’ve found is that mo... Expand
