Bridge the gap between understanding design and being able to build it. In this course, you will use your preferred development tool to create robust CCAF interactions.

Participate in a hands-on workshop to learn how to use Articulate Storyline* or Captivate to build instructional interactions. Basic knowledge of the tools is assumed. Learners will learn how to create interactions outside of the traditional “test-question” model, focusing specifically on using imagery and hot-spot and hot-object interactivity to create compelling context, using variables to track actions and delay judgment, and non-linear sequencing. This will be a multi-week course with required independent work.

In this course you will:

  • Participate in hands-on workshops
  • Recreate award-winning e-learning activities from the Allen Interactions portfolio
  • Work with professionally-created assets, provided by the instructor
  • Create interactions outside of the traditional “test-question” model
  • Use imagery and hot-spot interactivity to create compelling context
  • Employ variables to track actions and delay judgment
  • Craft non-linear, learner-driven interfaces
