#ELHChallenge 250: Graphic Design Techniques for Using Text on Image in E-Learning

We're back for another challenge with fellow e-learning heroes in the Articulate community. Articulate Storyline is a rapid e-learning development authoring tool with several development solutions, including their new cloud-based solution Articulate Storyline 360.

These challenges are a great way to:

🙌🏻 Build your portfolio if you are a new designer

🙌🏻 Get your work seen by other industry professionals and receive feedback from them in real-time

🙌🏻 See how other developer/designers interpret content

🙌🏻 Practice your design skills :)

This week's challenge asked course designers to share their design ideas for using text and images in e-learning courses.

I used the template from my submission for Challenge #247, and created an "app" about New York City Museums. This demo is still a work in progress, as I continue to build out the badges and pages for each museum. I wanted to create an informational guide, with the feel of a traveler's journal or scrapbook.

In sharing this demo, I received many questions about the map of 'The Met' I included in the "app" and how I incorporated the drag feature. One of the things I love the most about Storyline is its ability to make simple features look a little more complex (but not difficult, or too nuanced). The web object feature on the 'insert' tab allows you to drop a URL into a pre-programmed frame.

Web objects are a powerful way to embed web-based resources right into your Storyline 3 courses. Take advantage of web-based applications, games, videos, reference materials, and more—whether they're online or stored on your local computer.
