Power of Community

Ron Price

An interactive session designed to invite attendees to experience the power of community. This session will highlight the value that comes through engaging with others, challenging assumptions, speaking up and listening to others, and letting go of preconceptions.

This session will invite participants to hear and respond to a story, investigate and evaluate the facts, and discover how our understanding of concepts, processes, and design can be impacted by others.

Fundamentals of Accessibility in E-Learning

TrackImproving Course Design

Elizabeth Pawlicki

Accessibility is becoming a frequent topic of conversation for course developers. But what does “accessible” really mean? We’ll cover some of the basics of accessibility and talk about ways you can eliminate barriers in the learning environment to improve the experience of all learners. We’ll also discuss ways in which designing for accessibility benefits people with and without disabilities, society, and businesses.

Block 2: 11:00a - 12:00p

Built-in Features to Track Progress

TrackArticulate 360 Foundations

Ron Price

How can you let students know about their progress in a course? Storyline has some great built-in features that make this an easy task for developers.We will explore how the addition of Slide Number Variables makes it easy to communicate meaningful data to the student: Number of slides viewed, percentage of course completed, etc., and how to use a Slider or dial to display that data. This Slide number variable set can also greatly assist review and edit cycles by displaying the Scene and Slide reference data for accuracy. Or maybe “seat-time” is important to your organization. We will  look at a quick and easy way to turn on a course timer in your Storyline modules if needed.

Creative Quizzing with Sliders or Dials

TrackBeyond the Basics/Production Tips & Tricks

Stefanie Lawless

Sliders and Dials give us versatility when it comes to creating new ways for our learners to interact with content. Not only can you use them for a creative interactive slide, but you can also use them with quizzing. In this session, we’ll create a way for our learner to use a Slider and Dial to answer a quiz question, and show visual results.

Adding Polish to Your Course with Subtle Animations

TrackImproving Course Design

Mike Enders

For many new course developers, the choices for bringing content to life can seem overwhelming. However, it’s often best to keep things simple and subtle. In this session, you’ll learn how to give your Storyline project a professional shine with simple animations. If you’re new to Storyline, this session will introduce you to some basic animation approaches to help take your projects to the next level.

Block 3: 1:00p - 2:00p

TrackArticulate 360 Foundations

Elizabeth Pawlicki

For many organizations, creating accessible e-learning is both a mission-critical business goal and a legal requirement. The good news is that Storyline 360 and Rise 360 have the features you need to create e-learning that meets Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). In this session, we’ll cover the design considerations, features, and production tips you need to create accessible courses.

Technical Training Using Rise 360

TrackBeyond the Basics/Production Tips & Tricks

Stefanie Lawless

Rise 360 is such an amazing and versatile tool for e-learning! And Storyline 360 is such a jaw-dropping tool for screen recordings (and more, of course)! Can we take the best of both worlds and combine them? How can we incorporate some pretty powerful software simulations that we can build in Storyline 360 into Rise 360? In this session, we’ll create a short View/Try mode in Storyline 360, and incorporate it into Rise 360.

Graphic Design Essentials for E-Learning

TrackImproving Course Design

David Anderson

E-learning is a visual medium, so it’s just as much about visual communication as it is about learning design. While you don’t need to be a graphic designer to build effective e-learning, understanding some basic design concepts can help you create better e-learning. In this quick tips session, you’ll learn how to apply essential design elements to create more visually appealing courses.

Block 4: 2:30p - 3:30p

Multiple Choice Gone Wrong: Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Track: Improving Course Design

Zsolt Olah

Multiple choice questions are one of the most common ways to measure knowledge and application in your learning design. However, some fundamental mistakes can turn the learning experience and assessment into a horrible, no good, very bad day. In this interactive session (inspired by real examples) none of the above will happen!
