A Holiday-Themed E-Learning Makeover
Articulate E-Learning challenge #65 was to find three different templates, and utilize them to create a single presentation with a unified design.
*This presentation was updated to Storyline 360 for E-Learning Heroes Challenge #185: Design a Holiday Themed E-Learning Graphic or Interaction.
I chose the templates from the available Storyline template downloads on the Articulate website:
- A holiday-themed quiz by Allison LaMotte
- A village-themed branching navigation example, by Nicola Appel
- A holiday interaction by Nicole Legault
To combine the templates, I unified the fonts and color schemes on the slide masters and feedback masters. I decided to go with the holiday quiz fonts: Century Schoolbook and Monotype Corsiva. I incorporated the tree-decorating interaction into the holiday quiz, as one more example of the difficulties in returning home for the holidays. I brought the village into the mix by decorating it for Christmas, and used a car traveling into the village to introduce the existential dread of coming home for the holidays.
I created an animated video intro, using Plotagon animation. Finally, I changed the Storyline player color to red, and expanded the player to fill the browser, to give the presentation a Christmas card feeling.
