Converting Static Content Into Interactive E-Learning #299
I have a back catalogue of small instructional design challenges and charrettes that I’ve been meaning to build into something bigger one day. That is obviously taking too long, so here’s a new idea. The Articulate E-Learning Heroes Community runs a weekly eLearning Challenge. I’ve mentioned before that often different IDs in different contexts will use different tools, and while I’ve used some of Articulate’s products, I’m primarily a Mac user. This means that a number of their products are not available to me. So instead, I thought, rather than being an Articulate eLearning Hero, that I could be an InArticulate eLearning Hero. So here it goes.
Challenge of the Week[quote style=”default” cite=”David Anderson” url=”https://community.articulate.com/articles/convert-static-content-to-interactive-elearning”]This week, your challenge is to take a static content slide and convert it into each of the six freeform question types. The only new content you should add to the freeform questions is instruction and feedback. You shouldn’t have to create new content to make the questions work.[/quote]
Note: the options Articulate Storyline’s convert to freeform option includes
- Drag & Drop
- Pick One
- Pick Many
- Text Entry
- Shortcut Key
I’ll do my best to stick to these types.
For this first challenge, I went back through some of the slide decks I had for the ProCom OER project. That project was created with classroom sessions in mind, and had slide decks included. One such slide deck/lesson was on Using Visuals in Communication
So for this challenge I took slide 9 as the one to make interactive using H5P’s Presentation content type.
