Jumping back into the E-Learning Heroes Challenge this week.
2020 has been ... well you already know. We don't have to talk about it. But it totally had me off track where it came to challenges (but super productive in other areas...ahem...podcast).
I kicked off my first (official) mentoring cohort at the beginning of July and we are committed to completing a design challenge each week. We are starting with the #291 and #292 of the ELHChallenge because they cover skills for both beginner and intermediate e-learning developers.
For this submission, I tried out a new PowerPoint design technique for creating a cinematic intro. Don't get too drawn into the topic - it's not a real project. Lol. I found a video of two people making eyes at each other over coffee and created my own narrative. That's the fun part of portfolio design.
I also used Troy Ashman's tutorial on how to create a full-screen image background in Articulate. I really like the opportunity to flex the aesthetics of the design with tools like this one. (NOTE: The fullscreen image doesn't work in Articulate 360 Review or on mobile, but looks great on desktop, in - you guessed it! - fullscreen mode.)
In this demo, the user compares their responses to a conflict with their partner, with the responses from famed couple's therapist - John Gottman (and other therapists).
