612 Give Your eLearning an Animated Makeover

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM Thursday, October 30


Tower 3

Currently, a lot of eLearning can be defined as a high-level PowerPoint presentation that includes animated text, images, and narration. The problem is that this type of eLearning doesn’t grab and hold the learner’s attention. Many times the learner can’t relate to what is being presented to them, or understand how they can apply it to future situations.

In this session you will learn how to address the boring-eLearning issue by introducing story-based animated eLearning. You will explore how to transform a traditional eLearning course into an effective scenario-based animated story that learners can relate to and most importantly learn from. You will examine a current traditional course and see how you can convert each phase into an animated problem-based scenario. You will leave this session able to identify and create stimulating eLearning content.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to translate bulleted text into a scenario-based story
  • How to develop effective storyboards to support video production
  • How to produce high-quality audio narration
  • How to develop a scenario-based GoAnimate video
  • How to effectively insert a video into Articulate Storyline

Novice to advanced designers, developers, project managers, and managers.
