Learn to Move Beyond the Default Settings
Quiz results slides are one of the most important types of slides in your course because they visually communicate how learners performed on one or more quizzes.
Results slides are also one of the most neglected slides. It’s not uncommon to see custom, showcase-worthy courses sporting default feedback boxes or results slides.
Customizing the Quiz Feedback and Results Slides
Articulate Storyline and Articulate Quizmaker make it really easy to add and customize the feedback and results slides. They both use a freeform design model so you can visually style the slides to align with the rest of your course.
Screencast Challenge of the Week
This week, your challenge is to screencast a tutorial to show users how to customize their quiz results slide.
Feel free to cover Storyline or Quizmaker in this week’s challenge. The objective is to help users move beyond the default feedback layout.
NOTE: Don’t worry if someone already recorded a similar tutorial. The weekly screencast challenges are for you to show what you know using your own personal voice and style.
Topics or Areas to Demonstrate
- Adding and editing a results slide
- Customizing the look and feel of the results slide
- Modifying the feedback masters
- Customizing the colors, fonts, and layout of the results slide
Record Your Screencast
You can record your screencast using any tool you like. Storyline’s built-in screen recorder is one option. Replay works well for including webcam video with your screen recording. Another popular option is Camtasia.
Share Your Screencast
Please use YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia to host your screencast. That will make it easy for me to embed the tutorials in the weekly recap post for each challenge.
You’re also free to bundle your videos into a Storyline project (here’s an example). You’ll just need a place to host your published project. If you need help, I can host your files on our servers.
Ready? Set? Record!
