Production Tip: Access All of the Images from Your Website in One Click

When I create presentations for our webinars or workshops, I like to use the imagery from our e-learning community or the Articulate website.

The Power of an E-Learning Portfolio

At one point, I was hiring an e-learning course developer. I received hundreds of qualified applications; however I couldn’t screen them all, so I created a first filter based on their work portfolios. Most of the applicants tended to fall into one of two camps: they didn’t have an e-learning portfolio or the projects they worked on were proprietary so they couldn’t share them. I know that many of you are in the same boat. And based on the tons of emails I get about finding work in this industr...

3 Ways to Make Static Content Interactive

In a recent workshop on creating interactions, we looked at ways to take a single image and create interactive content. It’s a good practice activity because many of us aren’t graphic designers so it helps us see different ways to use stock imagery that doesn’t require a lot of editing. And it gets us to think about interactive content in ways we may not initially consider. The general idea is to find a single image that you can use for an interaction. A few things I look for: Visually interes...

How to Record Your Own Audio Narration

In e-learning software like Storyline 360 and Rise 360 you can record (or import) audio narration into your courses.

That means there are a lot of people that record audio narration who aren’t trained voice over talent. If you have money and the time, using professional voice over talent makes sense.

Formative, a student learning and analytics platform, raises $70M to challenge the summative, test-based approach to education

Tests are king in many school systems and other educational environments: they are seen as an efficient way to assess what knowledge students have retained, and how well they do on a level playing field where everyone has the same exam to take.
