After I posted “Learning Village Branching Navigation,” I received several emails asking how I did the illustrations. PowerPoint is a wonderful tool for that, and I created a screencast to show you what I did, starting with the buildings.

Once you've finished your illustration in PowerPoint, there are a couple of ways you can import it into Articulate Storyline. You can:

  • Copy and paste it, and it will display as a single image in Storyline; or,
  • Import the slide from PowerPoint

The primary difference between these two options is your ability to edit the illustration. If you import the slide from PowerPoint, you will be able to modify your illustration in Storyline. However, if you don't think you'll need to make changes to your illustration, you can cut and paste it as an image.

Now, it’s your turn to get creative. Design some buildings for your learning village and watch it grow!

You can always sign up for a fully functional, free trial of Articulate software. And don’t forget to post your questions and comments in the forums! We’re here to help. For more e-learning tips, examples, and downloads, follow us on Twitter.
