A More Engaging Info Dump
Click the image below to view the Articulate Storyline demo, a very late submission to the Articulate ELH Challenge #12: Transform Infographics Into Interactive Graphics
As an instructional designer/eLearning developer, sometimes I’m called upon to create “information dump” eLearning modules. These modules frequently contain a lot of downloadable documents on various disconnected subjects, such as forms for procedural updates.
I created this fun newspaper-themed interactive infographic to demonstrate how such information might be organized in an engaging way. Each pulsating button plays a short animated video, created with Plotagon animation, that describes the document update in question. Learners are encouraged to download the documents from the Resources tab.

This is an awesome idea for updates to policies (in my world). Question, where did you get the graphics and create the videos – great additions and funny!
Thank you, Billi! If you read the accompanying blog post, you’ll see there are two free resources listed: a cartoon font/PowerPoint download I created, and a link to the newspaper graphic download on the Articulate website. I created the animated videos using an application called Plotagon. You can find out more info here: https://www.plotagon.com/cases/tracy-carroll/
