In my blog, Content Chunking for Effective eLearning, I mentioned about screen-level chunking where an eLearning course is divided into modules which are further divided into chapters. These chapters are developed separately and the navigation from chapter to chapter is linked in the Learning Management System (LMS). But, one of our clients came up with a requirement of adding a button to the last slide of a chapter that would help the learner navigate to the next chapter.
We can create a simple final quiz, very easily, using the default features of rapid authoring tools. But, in some cases, the requirements pertaining to quizzes are very complex. You can use Articulate Quizmaker to meet such requirements, in a highly effective manner.
Recently, one of our clients asked us whether it is possible to display the time taken by the learner to complete the course easily, using Articulate Storyline. YES, we can.
Every eLearning course has formative and summative assessments to assess the learning. Articulate Storyline has this important feature in-built. It provides a question bank to randomize the questions and provide different questions to the learner every time he takes the course or quiz. Let’s see how to add a question bank to an eLearning course developed using Articulate Storyline.

Many training managers ask us to add a watermark to their elearning courses. It is quite easy to add a watermark to an online course. Recently, we were asked by a client to add his organization’s logo as shown in the image below.
E-learning is a highly effective training methodology. According to a report released by IBM, companies who utilize eLearning tools and strategies have the potential to boost productivity up to 50%. For every $1 that company spends, it is estimated that they can receive $30 worth of productivity. Therefore, it does not come as a surprise when Docebo reported that the worldwide market for eLearning will grow to a staggering $51.5 billion by 2016.
Create Flash-like Interactivities Using Storyline
Effective interactivities are the heart of a good e-learning course. They can be used not only to assess the learner efficiently, but also to reinforce the learning. They may be in the form of click-on-tab/images/numbers, slide shows, FAQs, etc. When these questions are gamified, they can be more effective in engaging the learner.

Many a time, kickoff meetings of eLearning projects begin with great fanfare. People are excited about working on a new project and enter the room with great enthusiasm. The meeting ends, and everyone feels satisfied that a good plan has been created for the successful implementation of the project. But, after a few weeks, the participants of the kickoff meeting find that nothing is going as planned and are very disappointed.
