Articulate eLearning Heroes Challenge #365 was about using video in quizzes and scenarios. I decided to create a video quiz about the rise of home computing in the 1970s and beyond.

I used several authoring tools to create this presentation:

  • Canva
  • Powtoon
  • Camtasia
  • Storyline 360

To find vintage 1970s images, I used Canva, an easy-to-use graphic design platform. Canva can be integrated with Powtoon, an application I frequently use to create videos.

After uploading my chosen images from Canva to Powtoon, I created a video by adding text, speech bubbles, slide transitions, animated shapes, and background music. I downloaded that video to edit it using Camtasia.

In Camtasia, I cut the video into several shorter videos, to be used to introduce the quiz questions in Articulate Storyline 360.

I exported the entire music track to be used on the base layer of Storyline, because that application doesn’t allow music to play continuously over several separate slides. Each video and quiz question in this presentation exists on a separate layer of a single Storyline slide.
