You might recognize Stephanie Harnett from all the innovative rapid e-learning tips she shares via Screenr. Or maybe you know her as the ultra-creative Articulate user who built an amazing Articulate-powered website last year. (Speaking of, did you know she now has another site layout, also built with Articulate tools?)
Well, true to form, Stephanie submitted an eye-catching course for the recent Articulate Guru Awards, and it won an Honorable Mention. Take a look:
What wowed the judges in Stephanie’s course? The Guru judges liked how the course opening sets the stage with effective synch’d animations. And the judges felt that the course really shines when the scenario-based content begins. After meeting the characters via a well-designed Engage Labeled Graphic, you get right into the scenario challenge. Hyperlinks and a creative approach to sidebar video allow the learner to gather ideas and input from the characters. The judges also liked the way Stephanie provides learners with choices and customized feedback as they make their way through the branched learning path.
